The Benefits of Chiropractic for Rotator Cuff Tears

The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint, providing it with stability and range of movement. Injury to the rotator cuff is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain, causing almost 2 million Americans to visit their doctors for treatment every year. Injuries range from a mild, dull ache if only one tendon is trained to excruciating pain if multiple tendons are ruptured. You may be a good candidate for nonsurgical treatment of your rotator cuff injury if the tear isn’t complete.

Chiropractic treatment and other nonsurgical therapies may be indicated to help relieve pain and restore range of motion to the shoulder. A skilled chiropractor is uniquely equipped to manage shoulder pain, with their knowledge of the musculoskeletal system. With careful, gentle adjustments, you may notice profound improvement in symptoms such as pain and impaired shoulder movement. Your chiropractor can also recommend other conservative treatments, such as massage therapy, hot/cold therapy, stretching, electro-muscular stimulation, or rehabilitation. A combination approach to treating your rotator cuff injury is likely best for achieving maximum pain relief and returning shoulder function.

Athletes, as well as those who have physically demanding jobs that require frequent overhead movement of the arms, are more likely to experience rotator cuff injuries. For example, swimmers are at risk a rotator cuff tear.
