Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Concerns

Shoulder pain can be caused by a repetitive stress injury, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), instability, dislocation, arthritis, fracture, or tendon disease or injury.

Another major cause of pain is rotator cuff injury. The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles that surround the shoulder joint. It’s often the culprit when athletes have shoulder pain after years of throwing or swinging. Tendons can be torn or worn from their original placement on the bone and require surgery to repair. There are many ways to treat rotator cuff injuries depending on their severity. Surgery is an option for large tears or severe injuries.

Early diagnosis of shoulder and rotator cuff concerns plus proper care is key. Mercyhealth orthopedic experts offer a range of treatments from conservative (physical therapy, orthopedic devices, injection therapies) to surgery.

Contact a Mercyhealth orthopedic surgeon to learn more about shoulder and rotator cuff surgery or therapy options.
