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.

What is a rotator cuff tear?

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.

What are the symptoms of a rotator cuff tear?

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.

What are the treatments for a rotator cuff 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.
