Rotator Cuff Injuries

Rotator Cuff TreatmentThe rotator cuff is made up of four muscles that surround the humerus (upper arm bone). The rotator cuff works in concert with the labrum, joint capsule, and ligaments serving as dynamic stabilizers and movers of the shoulder joint.

Shoulder tendonitis or inflammation is common from overuse injuries or biomechanical faults and can be a component of rotator cuff issues. Shoulder pain and shoulder weakness are common with rotator cuff injuries. Simple activities such as putting on a coat, brushing your hair, or opening a heavy door can become painful.

Overhead activities such as baseball, tennis, volleyball, and weight training are typical contributors to this overuse injury. Slips and falls can also cause acute injury to the shoulder.

Our Approach

For some patients, self-treatments such as ice, heat, rest, stretching, and over the counter pain medications can be helpful in easing shoulder pain. However, without proper diagnosis of rotator cuff injuries proper healing may not occur.

Proper evaluation of the internal rotators, external rotators, the scapular stabilizers, and any muscular imbalances is important for effective correction of rotate cuff injuries.

We use the latest manual therapies including as Graston Technique®, Active Release Technique®, and Fascial Manipulation to improve the texture and function of the muscles and alleviate shoulder pain.
