The shoulder is a remarkable joint that allows for a wide range of motion, but its complexity can also make it vulnerable to injuries. One of the most common shoulder injuries is a rotator cuff tear, a condition that can cause pain, limited mobility, and affect your overall quality of life. At Oklahoma Shoulder Center PLLC, we're here to provide expert insights into rotator cuff tears and guide you towards the best possible care and recovery.
A rotator cuff tear occurs when one or more of the tendons that make up the rotator cuff, a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint, become damaged or torn. This injury can happen gradually over time due to wear and tear or suddenly due to a traumatic event. Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear may include persistent pain, weakness, and difficulty raising your arm. It's essential to seek prompt evaluation and treatment, as untreated tears can worsen over time.
Our team at Oklahoma Shoulder Center PLLC specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of rotator cuff tears.
