Treatment Options for Rotator Cuff Tears

Experiencing a rotator cuff tear can be debilitating, but understanding the symptoms and available treatments can make the process more manageable. If you’re struggling with the following symptoms, you may have a rotator cuff tear:

  • Sudden, severe pain in the shoulder or upper arm
  • Weakness in the affected arm
  • A limited range of motion in the affected arm

At Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, we’re passionate about utilizing the least-invasive treatment methods possible. Some of our treatment options for rotator cuff tears include:

  • Conservative Treatment: Rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications play an essential role in managing the pain and swelling associated with a tear.
  • Physical Therapy: Our in-house physical therapists create customized programs that aim to strengthen the shoulder, restore mobility, and prevent further injury.
  • Surgical Intervention: If conservative treatments prove insufficient, our expert surgeons employ minimally invasive techniques to repair the torn tendon and ensure a speedier recovery.
