Alternative Orthopedic Solutions For Severe Rotator Cuff Injuries

May 4, 2018

For patients whose rotator cuff injuries do not recover well from physical therapy, cortisone injections, or other forms of non-invasive treatment, a common next step is to consider shoulder replacement. Fortunately, alternative solutions exist that allow our Atlanta orthopedic doctors to reconstruct the rotator cuff without replacing anything.

Rotator Cuff Tears

The rotator cuff comprises of muscles that connect to the upper arm bone and support your ability to move your shoulders in multiple directions. When a tear occurs, patients experience sharp pain and sudden weakness in their shoulder. Most tears occur as a result of excessive stress, slip and fall accidents, and dislocation.

Atlanta Orthopedic Treatment for Rotator Cuff Injuries

Treatment for shoulder injuries is decided based on each patient’s unique symptoms and the extent of their condition. Most rotator cuff injuries do not require surgery to recover since physical therapy and other conservative solutions are able to address minor tears. Cortisone injections are also useful for treating micro tears.
