Although Phoenix Pain Treatment is well-known for lower back and neck pain management and pain relief we have specific protocols for Rotator cuff Injuries. Rotator cuff Injuries arises when the joint capsule of the shoulder becomes inflamed and stretched or slightly torn. These traumatic and or repetitive injuries make the shoulder joint difficult to move in just about all planes of movement. The combined movement of the arm backwards is the most common occurrence when it comes to lack of motion.
A lot of patients first notice this when they are trying to put a belt on and feed their belt through the loops or when a woman has to reach behind to remove her bra, or just putting your arm into a long sleeved shirt or sweater.
The least common loss of range of motion in Rotator cuff Injuries is doing tasks that require you to use your arms and shoulders in front of the body. The Pain associated with Rotator cuff Injuries is usually a sharp pain, during certain movements, especially movements that require the arms to raise and rotate backwards. This is not the same as arthritis or shoulder impingement syndrome and can lead to frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis.
Phoenix Pain Treatment offers several protocols to manage Rotator cuff Injuries including interventional pain management, physical rehabilitation and chiropractic therapy.
