Rotator Cuff Injuries: A Range of Treatment Options
Shoulder pain is common across all age groups.  One of the most common causes of shoulder pain is inflammation of or injury to the rotator cuff.  If the pain does not subside in a few days, it’s best to be evaluated by a health care professional to determine the best type of treatment for your injury.

What is a Reverse Total Shoulder?
A reverse shoulder replaces the socket with a metal ball and the ball of the joint with a plastic socket, the result is a more stable shoulder joint that functions without a rotator cuff.
