A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. Each year, almost half a million people in the United Kingdom visit their doctors because of a rotator cuff problem. We can help treat Rotator Cuff Tears in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Worksop.
A torn rotator cuff will weaken your shoulder. This means that many daily activities, like combing your hair or getting dressed, may become painful and difficult to do.
If you have a rotator cuff tear and you keep using it despite increasing pain, you may cause further damage. A rotator cuff tear can get larger over time. Early treatment can prevent your symptoms from getting worse. It will also get you back to your normal routine a lot quicker.
Your doctor may recommend surgery if your pain does not improve with nonsurgical methods. Continued pain is the main indication for surgery. If you are very active and use your arms for overhead work or sports, your doctor may also suggest surgery.
