What Does Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment Involve?

Each patient’s ideal course of rotator cuff tear treatment will vary according to the specifics of his or her condition, such as what caused the injury and the extent of the tear. Generally speaking, treatment focuses on improving arm function and reducing pain, either through conservative techniques or surgical care.

A few of the most common treatment approaches for rotator cuff injuries include:

  • Periodic rest
  • Avoiding activities that place strain on the shoulder
  • Physical therapy
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
  • Anti-inflammatory injection therapy

Surgical treatment to repair a rotator cuff tear may be considered for individuals who:

  • Do not respond to conservative methods
  • Play a sport
  • Have disruptive symptoms that last longer than six months
  • Have a large rotator cuff tear
  • Experience significant loss of arm strength or function

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
