Rotator Cuff Repair Beverly Hills

By Steven Meier

Determining the appropriate course of action to repair an injured rotator cuff will depend on the severity of the damage and whether or not the damage responds to conservative physical therapy and heals on its own over time. If an orthopedic specialist determines that surgery is the best option to correct the problem, patients will have to undergo a course of physical therapy after surgery.

Rotator Cuff Repair Beverly Hills

The rotator cuff is made up of the group of ligaments and tendons that work to provide support and stability to the shoulder joint and allow for full range of motion and movement. When one of the tendons in the rotator cuff tears (whether through a sudden forceful movement or as the result of a mechanical overuse injury), it is often accompanied with pain and the inability to fully extend or move the arm. Orthopedic specialists like Dr. Steven Meier, who performs rotator cuff repair in Beverly Hills, will evaluate the extent of the injury and how severe the tear is. This helps determine the best treatment method, ensuring that the injury heals properly and reducing the risk of repeat shoulder injuries.

In cases of smaller and minimal tears, it may be possible to treat the injury with rest, ice, compression, and physical therapy, allowing the tear to heal on its own over time. In cases where a patient’s injury does not heal on its own within a certain time frame, or if the tear is large and more severe, an orthopedic specialist may decide that surgery is the best option. After surger1y, patients will immediately begin a course of physical therapy to rehabilitate the shoulder.
