Know the difference between a rotator cuff strain and a rotator cuff tear.

If you have shoulder pain and an MRI is taken and a rotator cuff tear is identified, you are told surgery is required. The fact is that most rotator cuff tears identified are chronic and degenerative in nature. They are not eliciting pain. In more than 95% of cases the cause of pain is a rotator cuff strain, not a tear. Knowing the difference can save you from a surgery that will not resolve your symptoms but increase them and reduce your chances of ever being fully functional.

The Yass method is designed to properly interpret the symptoms to identify the correct cause.  For more information go to www.mitchellyass.com or email me at drmitch@mitchellyass.com.
