Shoulder pain and discomfort can greatly impact your daily life, hindering your ability to perform even the simplest tasks. If you’ve experienced a rotator cuff injury, you understand the frustration that comes with limited shoulder movement and persistent pain. At Thrive Spine & Sports Rehab, we specialize in providing comprehensive rotator cuff physical therapy to help you regain strength, mobility, and overall well-being.
The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, providing stability and allowing a wide range of shoulder movement. Unfortunately, these muscles and tendons can become susceptible to injuries, especially among individuals who engage in repetitive overhead motions or suffer trauma to the shoulder area. Rotator cuff injuries can range from mild strains to severe tears, and they often result in pain, weakness, and limited range of motion.
At Thrive Spine & Sports Rehab, our dedicated team of physical therapists is here to guide you through the recovery process after a rotator cuff injury. Our aim is not just to alleviate your immediate pain, but also to address the root cause of your injury, prevent future complications, and help you regain full shoulder function. We achieve this through a personalized rotator cuff physical therapy program that includes:
Pain Management: We employ techniques to manage pain and discomfort, allowing you to focus on your rehabilitation with reduced discomfort.
Restoring Range of Motion: Our physical therapists work with you to gradually restore your shoulder’s range of motion through carefully designed exercises and stretches.
Strengthening Muscles: Strengthening the muscles around the rotator cuff is key to restoring stability and protecting the shoulder joint. We create tailored exercises to rebuild muscle strength.
