Treatment for Shoulder Pain
If you are experiencing shoulder pain or stiffness, the most likely culprit is the rotator cuff. This is the most common cause of shoulder injuries for adults. While many aches and pains are more common for athletes, rotator cuff injuries are known for impacting people from all walks of life.
You never realize just how much you use your shoulders on a day-to-day basis until one of them starts hurting. Rotator cuff syndrome can seriously impact your life and possibly prevent you from doing your job. Take the time to get it fixed now before it gets worse.
What’s the Cause of Rotator Cuff Syndrome?
Like most muscle and joint pain conditions, rotator cuff syndrome usually develops gradually over time. Your shoulder pain may be caused by the following:
- Wear and tear on the shoulder tendons
- Trauma to the shoulder
- Shoulder dislocation
- Repetitive movement injuries
· Structural abnormalities in the shoulder
These events can cause the muscles and tendons in the shoulder to bruise or tear. Thankfully, there are many non-surgical treatment options for this problem.
