Shoulder pain can be debilitating, and without proper medical care, it can become much worse
Do you suspect you may have a rotator cuff tear?
You may be experiencing symptoms such as pain, weakness, and loss of motion. You may be
worried about these problems getting worse, interfering with your sleep or ability to work, and
reducing your quality of life. Stiffness and inflammation, a combination often known as
“bursitis” or “frozen shoulder,” often occur along with rotator cuff tears.
Most commonly, injuries to the rotator cuff are caused by slip-and-fall accidents, sports
accidents or other traumatic injuries, but they can also occur as a result of wear-and-tear on
the tendons from repetitive movements or even age-related changes in the tendon fibers and
the joint itself.
Rotator cuff tears can be partial or complete, and the extent of damage to the cuff will have a
bearing on the type of treatment you will need and your recovery timeline, as well as the
severity of your symptoms.
The first step in treating a rotator cuff injury is to have your shoulder evaluated.
