Shoulder Injuries in Oregon
Common Shoulder Injuries Covered by Workers’ Compensation
Rotator Cuff Tears & Labral Tears are quite common and can result from actions as simple as lifting objects over your head. Consequently, tears in the shoulder’s ligament and tendons often prevent workers from lifting their arms above shoulder level. If the tendons were completely torn, surgery may be required to reattach them to the bones. Typically, the doctors will place restrictions on (1) lifting overhead and (2) lifting/holding heavy weight away from the body.
