Shoulder pain is one of the most common reasons that a patient is seen in the orthopaedic office. The vast majority of shoulder pain is treated non-operatively with physical therapy and sometimes a cortisone injection. The most common source of shoulder pain is the rotator cuff. For most patients, they have either a partial rotator cuff tear or tendinitis. Partial tears of the rotator cuff occur with increasing frequency with increasing age, but overhead activities can certainly incite more severe symptoms. These are the types of injuries that very rarely require any type of surgical intervention. Therapy and an injection normally resolve 80 percent of these problems. There are only a small percentage of patients who continue to have symptoms for greater than six months, despite therapy. For those still symptomatic despite conservative treatment, shoulder arthroscopy becomes an option. The patients who have a full thickness rotator cuff tear, particularly tears that are large, will require surgery to repair the cuff. Although this can be done arthroscopically, rotator cuff repairs will require at least three months of physical therapy post operatively. The consequence of not repairing a rotator cuff is a tear that continues to worsen potentially leading to severe arthritis.
