NEUROLOGICAL, ORTHOPEDIC &
Rotator Cuff Tear
Conventional medicine usually addresses rotator cuff tears through surgery followed by a physical therapy, but the truth is most of the surgeries can be avoided. In a study focusing on rotator cuff tears, Worland, (2003) determined that approximately 40 percent of asymptomatic patients over the age of 50 have full-thickness rotator cuff tears. This study shows that often times tears are just coincidental and not the main source of the problem. By addressing the functional problems of the shoulder girdle, many of our patients are able to live with their rotator cuff tears without any issues avoiding expensive surgeries and a long rehabilitation time.
