Non-Surgical Rotator Cuff Treatments in Virginia Beach, Richmond, and Milwaukee
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that help stabilize the shoulder and is essential for normal function. Torn rotator cuffs are common in aging adults due to the natural degeneration of the tendons and tissues. However, elite athletes and weekend warriors alike may suffer from a rotator cuff tear due to overuse or sports-related injuries.
Causes of Rotator Cuff Tears
The tendons that connect the muscles of the rotator cuff may overstretch or tear during one strenuous movement or gradually over time. When these injuries occur, they often cause intense or immediate pain. Swinging motions when playing tennis or golf are examples of activities that may cause a rotator cuff tear.
Other causes of rotator cuff tears include:
- Jobs that require repeated overhead movements such as painting, carpentry, and construction jobs
- Sporting activities that require forceful overhead motions, such as throwing a baseball
- Heavy lifting or pulling activities
- Trauma to the shoulder
Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Tears
Not all rotator cuff tears cause the same amount or type of pain. For example, tears that are brought on by degenerative conditions may take years before they cause painful symptoms.
Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear may include:
- Decreased range of motion
- Pain when reaching overhead
- Weakness in shoulder
- Pain when sleeping on the affected shoulder
- Cracking sounds when moving your arm
