Is there hope?
Successful treatment for rotator cuff impingment and tendonitis involves a hands-on approach followed by specific exercises performed properly. The result of successful treatment is less pain, less inflammation, better motion, improved strength and prevention of the pain returning.
Do you sleep like this or on your stomach with arms overhead? You may want to change your arm position if you are getting shoulder pain. This position puts pressure on the rotator cuff!
What is a Rotator Cuff?
The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles in the shoulder. They connect to your shoulder blade and arm bone (humerus).
The muscles are important to help you reach overhead, lift, get dressed and reach behind your back.
The rotator cuff tendons often become pinched as they pass under the end of the collar bone. This may result in calcium deposits or bone spurs and eventual tearing of the tendon.
