February 25, 2021

From the Medical News Today website

The rotator cuff is the part of the body that helps keep the top of the arm bone in the shoulder socket.

Sometimes it can tear, resulting in pain and weakness. A rotator cuff tear can also make it difficult to carry out everyday activities.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), almost 2 million people in the United States visit a healthcare provider with issues related to their rotator cuff every year.

Nonsurgical treatment is often the preferred initial method of treating a torn rotator cuff.

However, sometimes nonsurgical treatment is not feasible or does not work. In these cases, surgery may be required.
