Rotator Cuff Tendonitis

Rotator Cuff TendonitisRotator cuff tendonitis is a common condition caused by repetitive overhead activities over a prolonged period of time.

Overuse of certain tendons and muscles can alter and compromise the texture or quality of the joint, resulting in inflammation and shoulder pain. Ultimately, the tendon tissue can tear as it weakens.

Symptoms include pain in the front or outside of the shoulder, shoulder weakness, and stiff shoulder. When the shoulder becomes inflamed, even sleeping can be difficult. Since it is primarily and injury of repetition, sports such as squash, tennis, baseball, weight training, swimming, and golf can all lead to shoulder tendonitis.


Our Approach

Biomechanical considerations are a must when treating tendonitis. Rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications will help alleviate shoulder pain symptoms. If exercise or physical therapy is started too early, the condition will not respond favorably.

Manual therapy techniques such as Active Release Techniques®, Fascial Manipulation, Shockwave Therapy , Trigger point Therapy and Graston Technique® will all be used appropriately to improve the condition. Consideration of all components of shoulder movement within the kinetic chain must be done.

The ability to focus on the “cause” and not just treat the “symptom” sets us apart from other practices that may simply treat pain.
