Rotator Cuff Injury

, ,

Rotator Cuff Treatment in Atlanta GAThe group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint to keep the upper arm bone firmly within the socket of the shoulder is known as the rotator cuff. Injury to the rotator cuff most often occurs in those who repeatedly use their arms above their heads. Painters, carpenters, and those who play baseball and tennis are prime candidates for rotator cuff injuries. Those who suffer from a rotator cuff injury often require physical therapy to improve flexibility and strength of the surrounding muscles of the shoulder joint. For those who have had to undergo surgery for rotator cuff repair, physical therapy is also needed to rehabilitate the joint and muscles.

Exercises can help restore strength and flexibility in the shoulder to promote healing and function. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our treatment programs are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient.
