You will know exactly what's wrong with your shoulder and how it can be treated.
Based on your diagnosis we'll design a treatment programme just for you.
We aim to get you back to being active, enjoying life, and not dislocating your shoulder again.
In many cases, minor tears to the rotator cuff can be accurately assessed and treated by a physiotherapist. Our experienced team can see you promptly (generally within a few days) assess your injury, and set in place a rehabilitation programme to get you back to normal.
In some cases, more serious tears can require a co-ordinated approach to treatment, which is where we can bring in our Sport and Exercise Physicians, Orthopaedic Surgeons and radiology partners.
In some cases, rotator cuff injuries do require surgery, whether that’s a minor procedure or major surgery. Luckily, we have strong relationships with a number of leading surgeons.
Talk to our team about referral options for your injury.
In many cases a rotator cuff injury qualifies for an integrated care pathway (sometimes referred to as Careway), meaning your treatment (including all physiotherapy, surgery, Sport and Exercise Physician consultations and radiology scans) will be completely covered by ACC.
Do I qualify?
All patients must first be diagnosed and assessed before being placed on the integrated pathway. Generally speaking, however, if you have suffered a rotator cuff tear you have a good chance of qualifying.
