I am Dr. Zaneb Yaseen. I am a fellowship trained sports orthopedic surgeon with OrthoGeorgia. I’m here to talk about rotator cuff tears. Rotator cuff tears are very common. They can happen from overuse injuries or from traumatic events, such as a fall. Often people have pain sleeping on the shoulder, raising the shoulder up, reaching back behind – simple things.
It’s okay to treat this initially with some ice or heat, anti-inflammatories, or topical agents. If it’s still as progressive and lasts, it’s worth trying some simple exercises or stretches at home. If that doesn’t take the symptoms away and you’re struggling or you can’t raise the arm up, it’s worth seeing an orthopedic surgeon, such as a shoulder or sports fellowship trained specialist at OrthoGeorgia. We often recommend physical therapy and anti-inflammatories, or possibly an MRI, and we can help take care of you at OrthoGeorgia.
Dr. Zaneb Yaseen is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon with an additional certification in sports medicine. She works with patients at our Warner Robins office and has a particular interest in arthroscopy of the knee, shoulder, and hip, as well as joint replacement of the shoulder and knee.
