Rotator cuff pain may feel like regular shoulder joint pain but can cause irreversible damage to the shoulder ligaments. Meet our Orthopedic Doctors for a detailed diagnosis and undergo suitable treatment for shoulder pain and rotator cuff repair in Dehradun.
The rotator cuff comprises a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. It is responsible for supporting the shoulder joint and keeping the head of the arm within the joint socket. Rotator cuff surgeries are performed for rotator cuff injuries. Rotator cuff damage is very common in people who have jobs that require repeated overhead motions or in athletes due to sudden jerking motions.

Rotator cuff injuries are easy to diagnose via a physical exam. First, the doctor tests the strength in the shoulder and arm muscles to assess the extent of the damage before performing other diagnostic tests. Other diagnostic tests that are performed for rotator cuff injury diagnosis are:
For minor injuries, medical management is possible via rest, ice and physical therapy, but for rotator cuff tear repair, the only appropriate treatment is via Arthroscopic Tendon Repair. During the surgery, the surgeon inserts an arthroscope and surgical instruments to reattach the tears via small incisions. Patients will need a little physical therapy for torn rotator cuff after surgery.

A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons around the shoulder joint that helps maintain arm function. It supports the shoulder joint and helps keep the motions of the humerus smoother. In addition, it helps perform the abduction, medial rotation and lateral rotation motions of the arm.
Rotator cuff injuries are self-diagnosable. If you want to check for rotator cuff injury, follow the given checklist:
Torn rotator cuff operation, also known as, torn rotator cuff and bone spur surgery, is the best treatment for such injuries.
Suture anchors are tiny screws that are used to attach soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and meniscus to the bone to enhance healing in arthroscopic procedures. At Pristyn Care, we use PEEK and other biocomposite suture anchors material for rotator cuff surgery.
The average cost of rotator cuff surgery in Dehradun is 60,000-75,000 INR at Pristyn Care. This is the average cost of our treatment package and includes the cost of other auxiliary facilities we provide. It can depend based on:
This test is performed to find out the weakness of the supraspinatus muscle. The supraspinatus muscle is most often injured rotator cuff muscle. In this test, you have to extend your arm outside/to the side while in a sitting/standing position. First, raise your arm to 90 degrees with or without a helper, then try to lower the arm in a very controlled manner. If you have an injured rotator cuff, controlled lowering of the atm will be very painful and challenging.
It is the most reliable test for diagnosing a rotator cuff injury. The test is performed with an assistant’s help to look for weaknesses in the supraspinatus muscle. Raise your arm at a 90 degree angle, parallel to the ground. Then rotate your arm, palm facing backwards and thumb facing down. Then have a helper apply force on the arm and push back against the helper. If you have pain and difficulty resisting, that is a definite sign of a rotator cuff injury.
Lift-off test is performed to test the function of the subscapularis muscle, a muscle in front of the shoulder blade. To perform the test, place your injured arm behind your back with your palm resting on your lower back and then try to raise your arm. If you have any pain, then you may have a rotator cuff injury.
If you have a rotator cuff injury, you should get treatment as soon as possible to prevent the damage from worsening. The earlier it is treated, the less complicated the treatment will be. Make sure to keep the shoulder immobile to not exacerbate the injury.
Usually, mild traumatic rotator cuff injuries heal within 2 to 4 weeks with medical management. However, chronic and severe injuries may take a few months, including physiotherapy. Since rotator cuff tears do not heal without surgery, severe rotator cuff tears can be healed within 4 to 6 months with surgery.
Depending on the severity of the rotator cuff injury, you may require 2-8 weeks of physiotherapy after the surgery. You will be discharged in 1-2 days after the surgery. You can minimize the stiffness of the shoulder joint by immediately beginning the physiotherapy.
Complete healing from rotator cuff surgery takes 4-6 months, depending on the severity of the injury. However, most patients regain almost shoulder function and strength within 2-8 weeks. In chronic severe injuries, complete recovery may even take over a year. A torn rotator cuff in the elderly can also take much longer to heal due to their declining recovery capability.
You should massage the injured shoulder by applying heat. It helps control the inflammation and pain in the area by releasing the scar tissue and loosening the tight muscles, thus increasing the range of motion of the joint. However, you should avoid deep tissue massage till your doctor has approved of it.
