Rotator Cuff Tears

Information on Rotator Cuff Tears

A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. When your rotator cuff tears, it weakens your shoulder. This makes daily activities like grooming or dressing painful and challenging. The associated discomfort can significantly impact your quality of life and even disrupt your ability to sleep.

Treatment for Rotator Cuff Tears

Experiencing persistent pain in your shoulder or arm? It could be a sign of a rotator cuff tear, and continuing to use it despite the pain may exacerbate the condition. Over time, untreated tears can worsen, leading to increased discomfort and potential further damage.

Don't delay seeking medical attention if you're dealing with chronic shoulder or arm pain. Early intervention is key to preventing the progression of symptoms and getting you back to your regular activities faster. The primary objective of treatment is to alleviate pain and restore function, and there are various options available depending on individual factors such as age, activity level, and overall health.

Your doctor will tailor your treatment plan to suit your specific needs, taking into account factors like the type of tear you have. Often healthcare providers initially recommend managing rotator cuff tears through nonsurgical approaches such as physical therapy.
