Open Rotator Cuff Repair Chronic

Rotator cuff tears are one of the more common causes of disability and pain in the US. Just a few years ago, there were almost two million individuals who went to see their primary care physician because of an issue with their rotator cuff. Whenever the rotator cuff is torn, it causes your shoulder to become weak and many of your everyday activities wind up being difficult and extremely painful to do. If you are suffering from a torn rotator cuff, you can easily schedule your shoulder surgery with an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you with I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need open rotator cuff repair chronic?

Several different factors come into play when it comes to chronic tears, such as:

  • Repeating the same movements over and over can cause the muscles and tendons in the rotator cuff to become stressed. Tennis, baseball, rowing and weightlifting are all sports activities that can cause the muscles to become worn out.
  • The older you get, the more the blood supply in the tendons is going to lessen. When you don’t have an adequate blood supply, it causes your body’s ability to repair any damage.
  • Growing older means bone spurs develop along the acromion bone. When lifting your arms, it causes the spurs to rub against the tendon.

How is the open rotator cuff repair chronic procedure performed?

Surgery involves being able to reattach the tendons to the humerus head. An incision is made over the shoulder to detach the deltoid and gain access to the tendon that was torn. Bone spurs are removed from the acromion. Sutures are used to close the incision site.

What is recovery like after rotator cuff repair chronic surgery?

Your arm will be put in a sling for the first four to six weeks to keep the shoulder protected and promote the healing process. During that same time, you will begin a passive exercise program with the help of a physical therapist. These exercises will help to improve movement in the shoulder and maintain mobility.

After the initial four to six week span, you will begin an active exercise program to slowly improve arm control and increase muscle strength. At two to three months after shoulder surgery, you will begin doing strengthening exercises. It will take several months before you are fully recovered. Being committed to the rehabilitation process is the key to healing successfully.
