Rotator cuff treatment may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory pain medications, and cortisone injections.

Rotator cuff tears can also be treated with surgery but relieving the symptoms of this type of injury and stabilizing the injury can be achieved by following non-surgical procedures. Many people have rotator cuff tears but no symptoms of shoulder pain.

It’s believed that the goal of treatment of a rotator cuff tear is to relieve the symptoms, not necessarily heal the tear. Although, several factors may also determine if surgery will be necessary to relief the painful symptoms of a rotator cuff tear.
