Your shoulder joint is one of the most mobile joints in your body. It relies on a number of soft tissue structures to maintain its functional integrity, but largely relies on the rotator cuff musculature for support. The rotator cuff is comprised of four muscles that assist in stabilizing the humeral head (arm bone) during movement, providing increased stability to the shoulder, and are the primary movers during rotational arm movements. Rotator cuff injuries may cause you to have a difficult time raising your arm above your head, lifting an object in front of you or to the side, placing your arm behind your back, or cause you to be unable to perform recreational activities.
Whether your rotator cuff injury is tendonitis, a partial tear, or a surgical repair, our therapists at King Physical Therapy & Fitness will assist you in a full recovery. Our staff is trained in the most effective and established therapeutic techniques to target the rotator cuff and surrounding musculature.
