Abstract :

The pathophysiology of RCT is characterized by progressive, degenerative changes within the tendon as a result of overuse, altered shoulder mechanics, and a limitation of the normal tendon repair system with a fibroblastic and a vascular response known as angiofibroblastic degeneration. Reduced pain and improved function are the goals of conventional therapy, which includes relative rest, pain medication, physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, and surgery. However, many patients are refractory to standard care, particularly in severe cases; and rehabilitation time can be lengthy and time consuming for many. The effectiveness of conservative compared to surgical intervention is unclear. No therapy has been shown to uniformly improve clinical, functional, and radiological outcomes across severity grades of RCT, and no therapy specifically targets the presumed degenerative pathology of RCT
