How We Treat Rotator Cuff Injuries

We treat shoulder pain/rotator cuff injuries through education first. The key to getting better is understanding your injury in the first place, as well as knowing how we are going to help you get back to normal. We use a variety of techniques. For rotator cuff injuries, this may include manual therapy, IMS, stretching and strengthening exercises.

How do rotator cuff injuries typically occur?

Rotator cuff injuries typically occur as you age and with general use. Engaging in sports or other activities where you’re prone to falling often may also exacerbate these injuries. This is especially the case if you fall and land on your shoulder or attempt to catch yourself from falling. Poor posture can also cause rotator cuff injuries by putting extra strain on the muscles and tendons that make up the rotator cuff. This extra strain can cause those muscles and tendons to become overworked, stressed, and eventually lead to injury.


At Broadmead Physiotherapy Clinic, we want to help you live pain free – no more aches, discomfort or tension.
