ROTATOR CUFF TENDONITIS, BURSITIS AND IMPINGEMENT SYNDROME
The Rotator Cuff can become irritated and inflamed from chronic use and strain. Overtime, it can wear thin and start to tear. The chronic irritation can also cause the buildup of scar which can form an inflamed bursa that causes pain when it gets pinch during shoulder motion. Early treatment utilizes medications, injections, activity modification and a structured exercise program to stop the cycle of inflammation, swelling, impingement and pain.
When cases become so advanced that they don’t respond to non-operative treatment, arthroscopic surgery is highly successful in resolving the problem and achieving healing.
