Rotator Cuff Injury Treatment

Are you experiencing shoulder pain from a Rotator Cuff Injury?

Rotator cuff syndrome, also known as rotator cuff tendonitis, or rotator cuff injury, is a common shoulder injury. It’s caused by damage to the rotator cuff, the muscles, tendons and ligaments that stablilise and help move the shoulder joint. Typically treated with medication, home remedies and physical therapy, surgery is sometimes required. But there is an alternative treatment.

Low level laser therapy – offering relief from Rotator Cuff Syndrome

Low level laser therapy – also known as cold laser – a medical grade, painless therapeutic laser used as an effective treatment to reduce inflammation, restore healthy tissue and reduce pain.
The powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects of LLLT help to improve the quality of life in patients suffering from the pain of a rotator cuff injury.

LLLT works by enhancing circulation and encouraging the injured cells and tissues to repair, helping to restore normal function. As the underlying problem is treated, pain relief is possible.

A ground-breaking therapy for accelerating healing and relieving the pain associated with rotator cuff injuries, some pain reduction can usually be felt immediately after treatment and a series of treatments is recommended to achieve the best results.

Safe and very effective in treating pain, low level laser helps you get back in action, faster.

What causes Rotator Cuff Syndrome?

Damage to the muscles and tendons in the rotator cuff can occur for a number of reasons. An acute injury such as a fall or an accident, chronic overuse of rotator cuffs such as throwing a ball or weight lifting, or gradual degeneration of muscles and tendons due to aging.  There are different types of damage caused to the rotator cuffs:

Acute rotator cuff injury

Sudden forceful raising of the arm, an attempt to cushion a fall using the shoulder or heavy lifting may cause this injury.  This type of injury requires a remarkable amount of force for younger people.

Chronic rotator cuff injury

This type of injury is found among athletes who play sports which require excessive overhead activity, such as baseball pitchers, tennis players, and so on.  It may also be the result of an acute injury in the past that caused a structural problem in the shoulder and is now affecting rotator cuff function.

Tendonitis

This is a degeneration of muscles and tendons with age.

Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Injury

Symptoms of rotator cuff syndrome usually get worse over time. Although rest may relieve initial symptoms, they can become constant later.

Symptoms may include:

  • Dull ache in the shoulder.
  • Pain and swelling in the side of the arm or shoulder.
  • Raising or lowering of arm triggers pain.
  • Difficulty combing hair or reaching the back of the head.
  • Raising arm makes a clicking sound.
  • Stiffness.
  • Loss of strength and mobility in arm.
  • Sleep disturbance because of shoulder pain.

How is Rotator cuff syndrome treated?

Treatment should start soon after an injury or immediately after symptoms develop. This will give the patient the best chance of restoring flexibility and strength to the shoulder. If left untreated, the condition can lead to tears and inflammation, causing pain, weakness, and loss of function.

Nonsurgical treatment

Most rotator cuff syndromes are treated without surgery:

  • Medications
  • Home remedy, such as rest and applying heat or cold pad to the injured muscle.
  • Physical therapy

Surgery

  • Surgery is best suited for young and healthy individuals
  • People with advanced syndrome or those with tendons that are stringy (fibrous), tough and stiff usually do not respond well to surgery

Low level laser therapy is an effective, drug-free, painless alternative to traditional treatments for rotator cuff syndrome

Used on its own or in combination with traditional treatments under the guidance of a GP, cold laser can be effective in reducing or eliminating pain.

Instant or long-lasting relief cannot be guaranteed as results vary for each patient due to age, health condition, type of injury, lifestyle and concurrent treatments, however clinical evidence and our patients’ experiences indicate low level laser to be a worthwhile and effective treatment option for rotator cuff injuries.

Why not try laser therapy for relief from the pain of a Rotator Cuff Injury. We welcome you to book a session or speak to our laser team for advice.
