Is your rotator cuff causing you pain?
Do you feel a sting when reaching overhead or taking off a shirt? You may have suffered an injury to your rotator cuff muscles. These injuries can be excruciating and limit activity. Many minor rotator cuff injuries can be treated very effectively with Physical Therapy Treatment for shoulder pain, but there are circumstances when surgery is required to repair the rotator cuff.
Rotator cuff injury is one of the many injuries that can occur to the shoulder. Correctly managing the injury and understanding how the body functions are paramount to getting good outcomes and preventing recurrent problems.
Effective Shoulder Pain Treatment Requires an Expert
The shoulder is the most complicated joint in the body. As a result, it can be easily injured and challenging to rehab. The shoulder complex is made up of your clavicle, humerus, and scapula, with four separate joints connecting them. It’s a highly mobile joint; therefore, it is at high risk of instability. A complex network of muscles must work together to stabilize and move the joint, allowing you to function optimally. This is true whether you use your shoulder for work, picking up your children, or playing competitive sports. When the muscles become overworked or the joint becomes unstable, the shoulder is at risk for an injury. Due to the complexity of the shoulder, it takes an expert Physical Therapist in the movement and function of the shoulder to help you return to your desired activities without pain.
