Rotator Cuff Tendonitis Bentleigh

rotattor cuff 2

Rotator cuff tendonitis is inflammation in one or more of the tendons that stabilize the shoulder.  The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor. It is the tendons of these muscles that connect to the bones that help to move your arm. This common condition can be caused by overuse such as lifting, overhead activities, pushing, pulling or use of the arm in front of the body. However, it can also be caused by sudden trauma such as heavy or awkward lifting, an outstretched fall, or a forceful throw.

Focused Treatments for Fast Rehabilitation

Rotator Cuff Injuries Bentleigh

Symptoms can develop gradually over a period of time and can be characterized as an ache in the shoulder that can increase to a sharper pain or catching pain in certain activities. In chronic cases the pain may be disabling, preventing the person from performing further activity.

Treatment for the first 48-72 hours is Rest & Ice.  The next course of treatment is to book in with one of our experienced Myotherapists who can can perform specialised massage and other techniques to increase blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to assist with healing, as well as to reduce the associated spasm in affected and other related muscles. Myofascial Dry Needling can help to deactivate myofascial trigger points in these muscles and reduce the formation of scar tissue. Referral to your GP may be necessary if anti-inflammatories are required or to get an Ultrasound Scan performed.
