Rotator Cuff Tear Relief
Rotator cuff tears occur in the shoulder and can occur from falling on an outstretched arm, lifting something too heavy, or even general wear-and-tear.
The surgeons at Onward Orthopedics are rotator cuff tear experts.
How is a Rotator Cuff Tear Treated?
Rotator cuffs can get larger over time if left untreated. If treated soon enough, conservative care such as physical therapy, steroid injections or anti-inflammatory medication may relieve the pain. However, if you are a very active individual and experience continued pain, Onward Orthopedics physicians may recommend minimally invasive rotator cuff repair surgery.
Rotator cuff surgery utilizes shoulder arthroscopy to help repair damaged tissue within the shoulder.
