Rotator Cuff Pain
December 9, 2014
Pain and weakness in the shoulder are often indicators of a rotator cuff disorder. Discomfort or the inability to perform everyday activities such as reaching above the head, brushing or washing hair, tucking in a shirt, or picking up a small child are all signs that the rotator cuff has been injured. Pain is typically located in the front or on the side of the upper arm and shoulder, and is almost always exacerbated when making overhead movements. Many times people who experience this pain tend to “favor” their arm, but that can cause even more stiffness and weakness in the shoulder, further promoting issues. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we offer treatment for rotator cuff pain and injury. We are a comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation company that delivers individualized rehabilitation therapy services to our patients.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our therapy programs are tailored specifically around the individual needs of our patients. Our licensed physical therapists are committed to helping patients with rotator cuff pain find relief and return to full function. The rotator cuff is made up of a group of tendons that connect the main muscles of the shoulder to the upper arm. These tendons and muscles work together to stabilize the shoulder joint in order for the arm to move as it should. When the rotator cuff has been injured or is in pain, it is important to seek therapy. Without treatment, further problems to the shoulder and arm can occur.
If you have injured your rotator cuff or are experiencing pain in your shoulder, contact Sovereign Rehabilitation today to schedule a consultation with one of our physicians. We will design and implement a rehabilitation program designed around your specific needs and personal goals.
