Rotator Cuff Tear - Toronto Rotator Cuff Physiotherapy

Our Downtown Toronto rotator cuff physiotherapy program sees a lot of rotator cuff tears. It is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint. It’s what keeps the head of your upper arm bone firmly within the shallow socket of the shoulder. Rotator cuff injuries can happen in people who repeatedly perform overhead motions in their jobs or while participating in sports or weight training. People may also become more susceptible to rotator injuries with age. Some symptoms include: difficulties sleeping on the side with the injury, an ache that can be felt deep into the shoulder, weakness in the arm, and difficulties reaching behind you, such as brushing your hair or putting on a knapsack. If pain is felt longer than three weeks, you need to see a specialist as treatment options for this type of injury are time sensitive.

Rotator Cuff Tendinitis - Toronto Rotator Cuff Physiotherapy

Our Downtown Toronto rotator cuff physiotherapy program sees a lot of rotator cuff tendonitis. Rotator cuff tendonitis (inflamed tendon), biceps tenosynovitis (inflamed tendon sheath), ruptured biceps tendon (degeneration or tear) are all common terms that describe pain or injury to one of your shoulders’ rotator cuff tendons or bicep tendon. Rotator Cuff tendinopathy is an injury that is rarely seen to occur on its own and is caused by overuse or shoulder joint instability or direct trauma. It usually co-exists with other shoulder injuries such as rotator cuff tears and labral tears. This type of injury is common with contact sports, sports that involve throwing, swimmers, gymnasts, and heavy lifters. Symptoms will include: Pain aggravates by flexing your shoulder or elbow, clicking or snapping with shoulder movements, pain radiating down to the elbow, and muscle weakness.
