Using the power of innovative science and modern technology, Dr SW Clinic can help you live your best pain-free life without the need for invasive surgery.
A rotator cuff tear is a common injury that affects the group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint. These muscles and tendons work together to stabilise the shoulder and allow it to move in different directions. A tear in the rotator cuff can range from a minor partial tear to a complete tear, and it can be caused by various factors.
There are two main types of rotator cuff tears:
- Partial Tear: In a partial tear, only a portion of the tendon is torn. It may not completely disrupt the tendon’s attachment to the bone.
- Full-Thickness Tear (Complete Tear): A full-thickness tear, also known as a complete tear, occurs when the tendon is completely severed from its attachment to the bone.
At Dr SW Clinics, we can treat a range of pain conditions using Regenerative Medicine and pain-relieving injections. If you are tired of living with pain and looking for a non-surgical intervention, then Dr SW Clinics could help you get back to your optimal quality of life.

- Age-Related Degeneration: One of the most common causes of rotator cuff tears is age-related degeneration. Over time, the tendons of the rotator cuff can weaken and become more susceptible to tearing.
- Trauma or Injury: Acute injuries, such as a fall, sports-related injury, or lifting heavy objects, can cause a sudden tear in the rotator cuff.
- Repetitive Overuse: Chronic overuse of the shoulder, particularly in activities that involve repetitive overhead motions (e.g., throwing, painting, or lifting), can lead to wear and tear on the rotator cuff tendons and eventually result in a tear.
- Poor Blood Supply: The tendons of the rotator cuff have a limited blood supply, which can hinder their ability to heal naturally after injury or damage.
The symptoms of a rotator cuff tear can vary depending on the severity of the tear, but common signs and symptoms include:
- Shoulder pain, especially when raising the arm or lifting objects.
- Weakness in the affected shoulder, making it difficult to perform certain tasks.
- Difficulty or pain when sleeping on the affected side.
- Clicking or popping sensations in the shoulder joint.
- Limited range of motion in the shoulder.
Depending on the joint issue you present with, there may be a couple of ways to diagnose your pain and thereby find you a lasting solution.
Firstly, you will have a telephone consultation with one of our highly trained patient advisors. This patient advisor will ask you a series of pre-assessment questions to
better understand your personal needs.
You will then be invited for a consultation with one of our leading experts. To better gain an understanding of the problem, the Consultant may suggest you receive an x- ray or an MRI.
What is an x-ray?
A diagnostic test that can help identify what issues are causing the pain.
What is an MRI?
A diagnostic test using a magnetic field and radio waves for a detailed image of both joint and soft tissue.
What is an ultrasound?
Typically a handheld device that provides an on the spot image of the soft tissue.
Once we’ve received the results of your diagnostic tests, our team will be able to advise you on next best steps to get you pain free.
