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 vital 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 torn rotator cuff tear due to overuse or sports-related injuries.
Causes Rotator Cuff Tears
The tendons that connect the muscles of the rotator cuff may overstretch or tear during one strenuous movement or slowly over time. When these injuries occur, they often cause intense or immediate pain. Swinging motions when playing tennis or golf are examples of motions that may be difficult or cause pain with a rotator cuff tear.
Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Tears
Not all rotator cuff tears feel the same or cause the same amount of pain. For example, tears that are brought on by degenerative conditions may take years before they cause painful symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of a rotator cuff tear are:
- Decreased range of motion
- Pain when reaching overhead
- Weakness in shoulder
- Pain when sleeping on the affected shoulder
