Rotator Cuff Tear

Rotator Cuff Tear


What is it?

There are four muscles that hold the shoulder together by keeping the upper arm bone (humerus) in the socket. The tendons of these four muscles come together and wrap around the shoulder, creating the rotator cuff. A tear maybe caused by injury or repetitive movement of the shoulder wearing it down.







Pain at rest, when lifting or lowering the arm, or weakness when lifting the arm

Seriously, I walked in limping with a brace on my first day, and left feeling wonderful, and I kept improving after each visit!!! The exercises and attention from the therapists (Kelsey and Jamie) have helped me tremendously, which has enabled me to become more active than I have in a few years. I am truly grateful for their professionalism and attention to my individual need!! I’m HIGHLY recommend them!!

I had postpartum hip issue when I first came into RMPT. I’ve had physical therapy before but never believed in it. This time Jason took over my case and after 12 sessions I am back to 100%. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me. (Fort Collins-Central Clinic)
