Rotator Cuff Repair
The most common disorder of the shoulder that we take care of in this region is rotator cuff tears. The injury can be seen after injury, however most of the time we see the problem in older active individuals. Because Dubai has a great number of pilots, and the great requirement for overhead activity, this disorder is seen often.
Initially clients are evaluated by discussion of the problem, as well as by physical examination. If additional studies are warranted, usually an ultrasound or MRI is obtained.
