Residents of Palm County Florida with rotator cuff injuries can seek assessment and treatment with Dr. Van Sice. Dr. Van Sice assesses and treats patients with elbow injuries at Jupiter Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, located in Jupiter, FL.
There are two main causes of rotator cuff tears: injury, or acute, and degenerative.
To treat a rotator cuff injury, the doctor will often begin with non-surgical options such as resting the shoulder, avoiding activities which cause the pain, NSAIDs or other anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy and stretching exercises, or steroid injections into the joint. However, when these do not provide adequate relief surgical treatment can be necessary.
Surgery can be employed to address a torn rotator cuff when the injury is very serious or if non-surgical treatment has not been successful. It can improve shoulder strength and range of motion satisfactorily. Surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff tendon typically entails:
Arthroscopic surgery is the most common. However, the surgeon may need to perform Open-shoulder surgery for severe cases.
