- Rotator Cuff Tears – Knowing the Culprit
Anyone who is actively participating in sports – particularly those involving overhead motions of the arm – can suffer from painful rotator cuff tears. Sudden trauma and the natural aging process are also causes of rotator cuff injuries. Shoulder pain due to rotator cuff tears affects at least two million people in the United States every year.
- Surgery for Arthritis of the Shoulder
When shoulder pain causes disability and is not relieved with nonsurgical options, surgery may be the answer.
- Conditions Treated with PRP
According to research studies, PRP is most effective in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries, especially tennis elbow, a very common injury of the tendons on the outside of the elbow.
