The Basics of Rotator Cuff Tears

Rotator cuff tears are among the most common shoulder injuries treated by orthopaedic surgeons. If you have been diagnosed with this condition, then watch this video to learn about the basics of torn rotator cuffs.

The shoulder joint is formed by the scapula (shoulder blade) and the humerus (upper arm bone). The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles that are responsible for attaching the scapula to the humerus, and it allows the arm to lift above the head and rotate. Anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, steroid injections, activity modification, and surgery are all treatment options that your orthopaedic doctor may recommend for a rotator cuff tear.

If you’re experiencing shoulder pain or dysfunction, then come and see us at MK Orthopaedics. To make an appointment with one of our orthopaedic doctors in Joliet, please call (815) 741-6900.
