Rotator Cuff injuries of the Shoulder
The deep muscles of the shoulder form a band around the joint, holding it firm and helping to move it. This band is called the Rotator Cuff. This cuff can be torn through injury or through wear and tear.
If it’s only a partial tear, Physiotherapy treatment can help the recovery by reducing the pain and getting the shoulder moving again.
If it’s a full tear, sometimes surgery is indicated, and if this goes ahead, Physiotherapy is an integral part of recovery. Graded exercises are needed and progressed at various stages, and it’s really important to get instruction and help on how to do them properly.
