Rotator Cuff Injury Can Be Treated
Rotator Cuff Injury is painful and can really curtail physical activity that depends upon the use of the shoulder. The Rotator Cuff is made up of 4 tendons and muscles that unite around the shoulder joint, and are instrumental to the mobility of the shoulder and arm. These tendons keep the ball of your upper-arm bone in your shoulder socket and help you raise and rotate your arm. Injury to this area can cause tears or swelling and result in pain and lowering flexibility. The physical therapists at Elite Spine & Sports Care of Totowa can treat these injuries. While treating the injuries our therapists can also teach you about tools to use for future prevention. Treatment for Rotator Cuff Injury is usually accomplished with Deep Tissue Laser Therapy.
