There are many causes of rotator cuff tears

Rotator cuff tears are a common shoulder injury that can be caused by either repetitive motion or sudden trauma. Repetitive motion injuries occur frequently in people whose jobs require frequent overhead arm activities, such as construction workers, painters, and carpenters. Similarly, suddenly impacting the shoulder, like through contact sports or a fall can also lead to a rotator cuff tear. If you think you have sustained this kind of injury, it is important to seek help from chiropractors or physiotherapists who can diagnose the injury and recommend treatment options such as massage therapy, corrective exercises, and bracing.

Multidisciplinary evidence-based plans are designed to address the root causes and are developed to provide fast and long-lasting relief to ensure you can start living your healthier life today.

A rotator cuff tear occurs when one of the four tendons in the shoulder joint become damaged or partially severed. Typically, a rotator cuff injury is caused by repetitive movements or improper lifting technique that create stress on the shoulder muscles and ligaments.

Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear can include pain and weakness in the shoulder and arm, making it difficult to move or raise your arm, as well as an inability to sleep on the affected shoulder. Pain may also be felt when attempting activities that involve reaching behind you, such as putting on a seatbelt or carrying a bag. In some cases, there may also be a crackling sensation when moving your arm due to fraying around the tendon tear.

Treating a rotator cuff tear requires a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage therapy. These treatments can help to reduce inflammation, encourage healing, and, along with a program of rehabilitative exercises, may lead to an eventual full recovery. Chiropractic adjustments can lessen pain and discomfort while improving mobility in the affected area. Physiotherapy techniques enable increased ROM (range of motion) over time, helping to gradual decrease adhesions and scarring in the shoulder joint. Massage therapy can break down muscular knots in tight shoulder muscles and increase flexibility in range of motion.

Shoulder pain is something that people struggle with every day, but why does it occur in the first place? Common causes of shoulder pain can include AC joint sprain, AC joint strain, calcific tendonitis, long head of biceps tendinopathy, rotator cuff tendinopathy, shoulder bursitis, shoulder impingement syndrome, shoulder instability, shoulder labral tear, shoulder osteoarthritis, and shoulder slap lesion. It’s important to be aware of these potential sources of discomfort in order to reduce your risk for injury and take preventative actions that will keep your shoulders healthy and happy. Consultation with a qualified professional at CARESPACE can help determine the best solution to alleviate any discomfort experienced.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
