Published 5:32 pm Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Monte Palmer, occupational therapist with St. Luke’s Outpatient Rehabilitation, will present “The Rotator Cuff: Preventing Injury as We Age” on Tuesday, July 17 at 3 p.m. in the hospital Library.
A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. Each year, close to 2 million people in the United States visit a doctor because of a rotator cuff problem. A torn rotator cuff will weaken your shoulder. This means that many daily activities, like combing your hair or getting dressed, may become painful and difficult to do.
You can learn more about rotator cuff injuries and how to prevent them by attending Palmer’s presentation. Call 828-894-2408 to reserve your spot. Light refreshments will be served.
