Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment
About Rotator Cuff Tears
Rotator cuff injuries are common causes of shoulder pain and limited range of motion. Common causes include repetitive motions, shoulder instability and trauma from a fall or direct impact to the shoulder joint. The most common symptom for a rotator cuff injury is persistent pain, though many people also experience weakness and reduced ability to move the arm.

Depending on the severity of the injury, treatments may vary and include rest, physical therapy, regenerative medicine, dry needling, shockwave therapy, medications or even surgery. For more severe cases, there is an even more specialized form of surgery known as arthroscopy which can help repair damage in the affected area without extensive cutting into the muscle tissue. It’s important to take your symptoms seriously if you suspect you might have rotator cuff injury and seek medical help early on to prevent further damage or delay in healing.
