Treatment varies according to the type of injury.
Nonsurgical treatment options relieve pain and improve shoulder function include:
- Rest and limiting overhead activities and activities that cause shoulder pain
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Strengthening exercises and physical therapy to restore movement and strengthen your shoulder
- Steroid injections
If the pain persists and does not improve with nonsurgical methods, or if you actively use your arms for work or sports, your doctor may recommend surgery.
Surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, combined with a physiotherapy programme after, are aimed at improving your shoulder strength and motion, as well as reducing pain.
Consult an orthopaedic surgeon to determine the treatment method most suitable for you.
