Rotator Cuff

The Basics

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons in the shoulder that are needed for function and stability. The cuff can be injured partially, completely, or gradually wear down over time. 

Tearing the cuff can also be caused through repetitive overhead motion, which can come from anything from sports to work. Its symptoms include pain, loss of function, and weakness. A common complication of rotator cuff injury is frozen shoulder. Treatment for injuring the cuff includes physical therapy, medication, lifestyle changes, steroids, and surgery if other treatments fail. After surgery, the recovery for this injury includes a sling for 4-6 weeks

 

 

Often times, a shoulder with rotator cuff tendonitis, tendinosis, or other inflammatory conditions may result in a rotator cuff tear.

Study

A study from the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery looked at 157 patients that had rotator cuff surgery. They found that even 20 years after surgery, a majority (55%) of the patient’s shoulders were in excellent or good condition. Only 10% of patients needed additional surgery and 2.4% needed reverse total shoulder replacement.

Arthritis

Arthritis means inflammation (itis) of the joint (arthro). There are over a hundred types of arthritis that can affect any joint, but the three most common types are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post traumatic arthritis. Osteoarthritis inflames the joint over time, as the articular cartilage deteriorates, bone rubs against bone, and stiffness and pain ensue. In rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system targets and harms the articular cartilage. In post traumatic arthritis, arthritis develops after an injury to the knee, from broken bones to meniscus tears.
