What causes rotator cuff impingement?
Rotator cuff impingement often affects athletes and older adults. It occurs when one of the tendons that comprise the rotator cuff becomes damaged from trauma or wear and tear, triggering swelling that can get caught by the bones that make up the shoulder joint. Symptoms can include general pain in the shoulder area that worsens when raising the affected arm or putting it behind your back.
How is rotator cuff impingement treated?
Many adults are able to find relief from their symptoms through self-care measures like rest, ice therapy, and over-the-counter pain relievers. A physician will be able to determine if other treatments are necessary, such as anti-inflammatory injections and physical therapy. Surgery is typically reserved for patients with severe symptoms that do not respond to conservative approaches.
Physicians Rehabilitation offers a variety of advanced conservative techniques, such as tailored physical therapy regimens and PRP injections, to help patients with rotator cuff impingement find meaningful relief from their symptoms without surgery.
