About Rotator Cuff Injuries
Rotator cuff tears cause weakness and can be very painful even to the point of impacting a person’s ability to perform activities of daily living such as getting dressed.
The rotator cuff is comprised of four muscles that unite as tendons to cover the head of the upper arm bone (humerus). It attaches the upper arm bone to the scapula (shoulder blade).
When one or more of the tendon(s) is torn, the tendon(s) do not fully attach to head of the upper arm bone. These tears are often referred to as either partial thickness tears (tendon is damaged but not completely severed) or full-thickness tears (tendon completely separated from the bone).
Partial thickness tears can often be treated with rest, avoiding certain activities, shoulder strengthening exercises, steroid injections, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections, or amnio injections.
Our personal injury law firm has connections with medical providers that offer all of the above – including the cutting-edge PRP and amnio injections.
Full-thickness tears usually require surgery to heal. Physical therapy and rehabilitation following shoulder surgery tends to be very painful and very extensive, but it is critical that it be fully completed to avoid developing a frozen shoulder.
Someone who has experienced a torn rotator cuff will be susceptible to re-injury in the future.
The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that help move and stabilize your shoulder joint. These muscles also keep the ball of your arm bone in your shoulder’s socket.
You can actually experience many types of rotator cuff injuries, including:
- General wear and tear – This describes pain that can result from using your rotator cuff repetitively over time. Such injuries can occur from using your shoulder in a perfectly normal way.
- Tendonitis – This injury results from overuse of your shoulder. It’s a common injury for jobs that involve extensive overhead work and results in pain and inflammation.
- Bursitis – Small fluid-filled sacs (bursa) become inflamed or irritated. Like tendonitis, bursitis results from overuse, typically from frequent overhead work.
- Tendon strain or tear – These injuries can result from both overuse and acute accidents. Strained tendons also can be more easily torn. A torn rotator cuff leads to more pain, extreme weakness in your shoulder, and the inability to fully move your arm.
- Shoulder impingement – This is when your rotator cuff rubs or catches on bones in your shoulder. The tendons in your shoulder become swollen and painful. If ignored, this can lead to a torn rotator cuff.
While serious, shoulder injuries can usually be treated to the point of full recovery. Treatment can include rest, medication, physical therapy, injections, or surgery.
Your doctor will help you figure out the right combination for your specific injury. And more frequently than not, you won’t need surgery.
If you experience a shoulder injury, it’s important to see your doctor immediately so you can get your shoulder back to normal as soon as possible.
