Rotator Cuff Tear Treatment
One of the most common shoulder injuries to the rotator cuff is a tendon tear. Rotator cuff tears can be small or partial. Tears can also be complete, resulting in a tendon that is no longer attaching the related muscle and bone. Both partial and completed rotator cuff tear injuries require treatment for recovery. Our interventional and regenerative medicine specialists at Caliber Pain™ offer rotator cuff tear treatment at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.
The rotator cuff contains four muscles and tendons that connect them to the shoulder joint. This group of tendons and muscles are needed for lifting the arm and performing certain rotation movements. Rotator cuff tears can occur from any trauma that forces the tendons to stretch beyond the normal limits. This can occur when the arm is outstretched when falling with force or from lifting heavy weights repeatedly. Athletes in both contact (football) and throwing (baseball, basketball) sports commonly sustain rotator cuff tears. Degenerative conditions can also increase the chances of tendon tears as they weaken with repeated use and age.
Minimally-Invasive Rotator Cuff Treatments
Some severe or complete rotator cuff tears may require surgery. At Caliber Pain™, we offer minimally-invasive interventional and regenerative medicine treatments that can heal some types of rotator cuff tears without surgery. Corticosteroid injections can offer pain relief and reduce inflammation for improved healing. Regenerative medicine with stem cells, PRP or other healing factors can stimulate new tissue growth. Our state-of-the-art facility in New York City offers cutting-edge treatments for patients who want minimally-invasive options for rotator cuff tear treatment.
