I had surgery for torn slap on right shoulder. I am in my 6th week of therapy and pain medication does not help much. Would'nt muscle relaxers be more effective?
Why would doctor prescribe pain pills instead of muscle relaxers after shoulder surgery?

Why don't you ask your surgeon for some muscle relaxers if you feel they will be more helpful than pain meds.? I would think that both would be effective.
But after six weeks maybe the pain meds aren't working because you've become tolerant to them, that's a possibility.
Hope you get the mr's you need and wishing you a speedy recovery,
