In this lecture Professor Zach Murphy will be presenting on Rotator Cuff Tear. During this lecture we will be starting with the anatomy of the shoulder and talking about the muscles that make up the rotator cuff. Next we move into the causes, pathophysiology, and clinical features of a rotator cuff tear. We will then be moving into the diagnosis of a rotator cuff tear along with a clinical exam on our patient Q! During our clinical exam we will be going through the inspection, palpation, range of motion, strength, and special tests for a suspected rotator cuff tear. We will conclude this lecture with the treatment of a rotator cuff tear including the surgical options available. We hope you enjoy this lecture and be sure to support us below!
