One of the most common shoulder injuries today is a rotator cuff tear. A torn rotator cuff causes a significant amount of pain and can negatively affect your daily activities and lifestyle. The incredible mobility and range of motion of the shoulder joint, can make it vulnerable to tears. Recent advances in the treatment options allow for arthroscopic repair of a torn rotator cuff.
