Normal structure: Its a fluid filled sack between the rotator cuff and the acromion. It resides below the acromion, hence "sub-acromial".

This can be painful, and a risk factor for rotator cuff tears in the future. Its usually treated with anti-inflammatory meds, pt, and rest. If not better, a work up is warranted. ...Read more

Rotator cuff repair: There are probably too many factors to consider here. At your age, the chances if having a full rotator cuff tear is less common, but if it has occurred, we would recommend an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. A rotator cuff typically tears at the tendon close to where it meets the bone, and cannot heal on its own.
