Treating Shoulder Injuries With Carefully Designed Physical Therapy
Consisting of a group of four tendons, the rotator cuff is responsible for stabilizing the shoulder joint. This allows us to raise and position our arms in a relatively easy fashion. Despite the fact that the rotator cuff serves a necessary function, it is very susceptible to injury. Rotator cuff disease is a pathology that results from any activity or biological cause that damages the cuff. It can be caused by:
- Heavy lifting
- Frequent straining
These are not the only causes, but they are some of the most prominent. These injuries can result in a plethora of symptoms, including acute pain in the shoulder area. Rotator cuff injuries are extremely common, and older individuals are at the highest risk of developing them.
