A recent Cochrane review looked at studies of people with rotator cuff tears comparing those who had surgery with those who did not. What do you think they found? Did surgery provide benefit? Is it OK to go without surgery in these cases? Sandy and Cory discuss these findings and provide their clinical commentary in this episode of Pain Science and Sensibility.
