Understanding The Effects of Rotator Cuff Arthropathy

If you're struggling with severe pain and loss of movement in your shoulder, arthritis might not be the only thing to blame. We look at how a rotator cuff tear can turn into rotator cuff arthroplasty, and we look at how the condition can be treated.

Why Shoulder Pain Should Never Be Ignored

It is easy to push nagging pain to the back of your mind and hope it will just go away, but shoulder pain must be taken seriously to avoid conditions with lengthy recovery times.
