Rest easier. Shrug off rotator cuff pain.
If you have a passion for pitching, a taste for tennis, or a soft spot for swimming, you may develop increasing shoulder discomfort that is the hallmark of rotator cuff syndrome. Repetitive overhead motions – whether at work or at play – can wreak havoc on the tendons and muscles that join your shoulder to your arm bone. Accidents and injuries can also be the culprits in rotator cuff pain, as can overuse following inactivity that has weakened the muscles.
If you have a rotator cuff injury, you may feel the deep ache that often accompanies tendonitis, a loss of strength from small muscle tears, or the shooting pain of a pinched nerve. While some people opt for prescription drugs and painful steroid injections, others prefer the noninvasive approach of chiropractic treatment.
At ChiroChicago, we know that a one-size-fits-all approach to rotator cuff syndrome is ineffective. After your initial examination, we will tailor a treatment plan that will enable you to more quickly resume the activities you enjoy. Your treatment may include spinal and shoulder adjustments, stretching, strengthening exercises, and soft tissue work.
