Rotator Cuff Injury Treatment Options

The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles in the shoulder, and these muscles provide stability and flexibility for the shoulder joint. When any of these muscles are injured, the result is weakness in the shoulder, reduced mobility, and significant pain. There are both surgical and non-surgical treatment options available for repairing a damaged rotator cuff.
