IMPINGEMENT AND PARTIAL ROTATOR CUFF TEARS
Partial-thickness rotator cuff tears can be associated with chronic inflammation and the development of spurs on the underside of the acromion or the acromioclavicular joint.
The conservative nonsurgical treatment is the modification of activity, light exercise, and, occasionally, a cortisone injection.
Nonsurgical treatment is successful in the majority of cases.
If it is not successful, surgery often is needed to remove the spurs on the underside of the acromion and to repair the rotator cuff.
