Rotator Cuff Injuries

When to Receive Rotator Cuff Treatment

Injuries to the rotator cuff limit basic everyday functions and you should address your shoulder pain no matter the severity. It’s not wise to fight through pain because these cumbersome restrictions of motion will only get worse if ignored. Your dull pain could be significant, such as a loss of function from a rotator cuff tear or strain. Speaking with a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis is key to ensure your recovery. Often a rotator cuff injury can be treated with physical therapy exercises to improve strength and flexibility in the muscles, however surgery is occasionally a common choice to quickly fix the issue. Our doctors at IBJI will create a custom treatment and recovery plan suited to your condition, with assistance from diagnostic imaging technology.
