Rotator Cuff Injury

Looking for relief post-rotator cuff repair?

What is a rotator cuff injury? 

Have you recently been experiencing an achy sensation in your arm, had issues getting to sleep at night, problems lifting things, or numbness in your neck? If these symptoms sound familiar, you might have received a rotator cuff injury, also known as a torn shoulder.

The rotator cuff is made up of muscles and tendons that help keep the shoulder in place and moving properly. People experiencing these kinds of injuries typically report feeling a painful, dull ache deep in their shoulder, difficulty reaching behind their backs, weakness in their arms, or trouble getting a good night’s sleep due to pain.

At Eastern Shore Physical Therapy, we offer natural and non-invasive methods of therapy that can help relieve your shoulder pain and heal your rotator cuff injury. Our physical therapists at Eastern Shore Physical Therapy are professionally trained to know how to treat conditions like these, and assess your body for underlying conditions as well!

Post-surgical treatment for rotator cuff repair

Regardless of whether your pain is caused by a torn rotator cuff or a pinched nerve, physical therapy is a great option to restore and improve your strength and flexibility in your shoulders and neck post surgical.

Your physical therapist will assess your pain condition, create a customized treatment plan for your needs, and teach you exercises and stretches to improve your range of motion and strengthen the injured shoulder. 

He or she will also inform you of things you should avoid doing to keep from reinjuring yourself and experiencing shoulder pain again down the road. For example, if you play sports, they may advise you to take frequent breaks to reduce the amount you’re using your shoulder.
