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!!

Rocky Mountain PT has turned out to be an excellent choice in doing my therapy. From the ease of scheduling through the office to the way they make you feel throughout the entire process is great. I had Derrick for the majority of my appointments and he was able to help alleviate so many of the post surgery issues I was having. He was always open ears to how I was feeling and I could tell he has a passion for really trying to "help". From one small business to another its nice to see a company that truly cares. Thank You Derrick!
