Tears


Tears

Tears are  more severe soft-tissue traumas that occur when a muscle, ligament, or tendon has been overextended or stressed so far as to cause a rupture in the tissue. These injuries are usually caused by a fall, twist, or impact to the affected area. If you've suffered a tear, symptoms will usually include severe pain, swelling, and a limited range of motion. 

Our Express clinic handles tears of all kinds, most commonly knee ligament tears (such as ACL, MCL, meniscus, etc) and rotator cuff tears. Regardless of where and how, if you think you've torn something, getting in to see a doctor as soon as possible is a critical first step in the treatment and recovery process. The doctors and staffat Excelsior are here and readyto help. Make an appointment today.

For more information on soft-tissue tears, check out this great resource from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
