Rotator Cuff Tears
The Rotator Cuff is a series of four large tendons in the shoulder which help control shoulder motion.
It is possible for these tendons to become worn and sometimes the rotator cuff tendons can tear either part way through the thickness of the tendon.
If one or more of these tendons are torn then this can result in reduced function or strength in your shoulder and pain.
An operation is an important and usually stressful period of your life.
The following information, like the other Videos, is designed to answer some of the questions you may have with Post-Op Care.
The Shoulder is the most moveable joint in your body. It helps you to lift your arm, to rotate it, and to reach up over your head.
It is able to turn in many directions. This greater range of motion, however, can cause Shoulder Instability.
