Medical Monday: Rotator Cuff Tears – Summit Medical Group

Rotator cuff tears are one of the most common shoulder injuries for participants in baseball, bowling, cricket, swimming, tennis, and kayaking, or other activities that may overuse the shoulder. The rotator cuff is the group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder. When torn, symptoms can range from a acute pain to gradual weakness and decreased shoulder motion. Summit Medical Group orthopedics surgeon, Matthew Garberina, M.D., discusses treatment and prevention of rotator cuff tears.
