A rotator cuff tear is a common injury, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with the pain and the interruption it may cause in your life. If left untreated, a rotator cuff tear can cause severe pain and a decreased ability to use your arm. The good news is that physical therapy is an effective treatment for this type of injury.

As you work with your physical therapist at RPT, it’s important to stay on track with your treatment plan. Our experienced professionals have the knowledge necessary to create an individualized recovery plan for you. All that’s required from you is a positive attitude and a willingness to work. We’re confident you’ll be able to make huge strides towards recovery!

Sometimes, a rotator cuff injury can be severe enough to require surgery. In this case, working with a Physical Therapist post-surgery is your best bet to regain your mobility, strength, and function. Our therapists can help ease you into stretches shortly after surgery, which will help speed up your recovery process. As you work with one of our therapists, we’ll assess your goals and determine the quickest and most efficient way to reach those goals.
