Generally, pain relief medication would be the first line of treatment. A steroid injection can be given to relieve pain and inflammation.

Physiotherapy is recommended to increase shoulder muscle strength and improve flexibility.

Surgical options include arthroscopic (Arthroscopy) or key-hole repair. The torn edge of the cuff is removed and mobilised. The tendons are reattached to the bone using absorbable or metal anchors using the latest technique available. Traditional open repair of the rotator cuff can also be performed. After surgery, patients are put in a sling or brace. Therapy starts the day after surgery.
