East Tennessee Spine & Sport is your go-to provider for
Rotator Cuff Syndrome

Rotator cuff syndrome refers to a group of conditions that affect the muscles and tendons of the rotator cuff in the shoulder. It typically involves inflammation, irritation, or tears in the rotator cuff tendons, which can result from repetitive overhead movements, trauma, or age-related degeneration. Symptoms of rotator cuff syndrome include shoulder pain, weakness, limited range of motion, and difficulty with daily activities. Treatment options may include rest, physical therapy exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles, pain management techniques, and in some cases, surgical intervention to repair or reconstruct the damaged tendons.
East Tennessee Spine and Sport would treat rotator cuff syndrome using a comprehensive approach tailored to each patient's needs. Their highly skilled therapists would conduct a thorough assessment to determine the extent of the condition. Treatment would typically involve a combination of targeted exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles, improve range of motion, and enhance shoulder stability. They may also employ manual therapy techniques, such as joint mobilizations or soft tissue mobilizations, to reduce pain and inflammation. Modalities like heat or cold therapy, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound may be utilized to further alleviate symptoms.
