Does your shoulder feel like it’s on fire after a game of golf or a day of fishing? It’s frustrating when you can’t do the things you love because of muscular pain in your shoulder, right?

The Shoulder Fire: Understanding Rotator Cuff Tears

The group of tendons and muscles surrounding the shoulder joint and keeping it stable is called the rotator cuff. When the rotator cuff is torn, it can cause pain and a limited range of motion. 

There are two types of rotator cuff tears: 

  • Acute: Acute tears are usually the result of a sudden injury, such as a fall or whiplash.
  • Chronic: Chronic tears develop over time due to overuse or degeneration. Common causes include repetitive overhead motions or lifting heavy objects.

Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear include:

  • Muscular pain in the shoulder.
  • Weakness, and difficulty lifting your arm. 

This injury can impact daily activities such as getting dressed, reaching for objects and even sleeping comfortably.

Targeted Healing: Revolutionary Treatment Options for Rotator Cuff Tears

When it comes to treating a rotator cuff tear, the traditional method may not always be the most effective option. Surgery can be a daunting prospect with a long recovery time, and physical therapy may not always address the root cause of the issue. That’s where MVMT Sports Chiropractic comes in with our unique and modern approach to rotator cuff tear treatment.

Our approach includes the use of laser therapy and fascial manipulation:

  • Laser therapy is a game-changer, providing almost instant pain relief while also promoting healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation. 
  • Fascial manipulation takes things to the next level by targeting other areas of the body that may be causing the rotator cuff to overwork, addressing the underlying cause of the injury.

Unlike traditional methods that rely on resistance bands, our modern approach to rehab provides faster and more effective results. We also have the ability to identify other areas of the body that are not functioning correctly, which can further improve overall rotator cuff issues.
