Shoulder/Rotator Cuff

Relief of Shoulder/Rotator Cuff pain

Has severe pain in your shoulder caused you to avoid normal use of your arm? Do you have difficulty reaching into high cabinets or drying your hair? Pulling or lifting heavy objects? Does the constant ache in your shoulder awaken you during the night? Does your physician have sympathy but no solution for your suffering except pain medication and temporary relief?

There is hope! There is relief! There is CuraLase!

The rotator cuff consists of four muscles and tendons that connect the upper arm bone with the shoulder blade. These muscles and tendons help move and stabilize the shoulder joint. Damage to any of these four muscles or tendons can occur because of an acute injury, chronic overuse, or aging. This damage can cause significant pain and limited range of motion and use of the shoulder joint.

Anatomy

The shoulder is a ball and socket joint that allows the arm to move in many directions. It is made up of the humeral head (upper end of the bone of the upper arm) fitting into the glenoid fossa of the scapula (shoulder blade). The humeral head is kept in place by the joint capsule and labrum, thick bands of cartilage that form an elongated cone where the humeral head fits. The rotator cuff muscles are the dynamic stabilizers and movers of the shoulder joint and adjust the position of the humeral head and scapula during shoulder movement.

Causes of Shoulder/Rotator Cuff Pain

  • Tendinitis. Tendons in the rotator cuff can become inflamed due to overuse or overload.
  • Bursitis. The fluid-filled sac (bursa) between the shoulder joint and rotator cuff tendons can become irritated and inflamed.
  • Strain or tear. Tendinitis can weaken a tendon and lead to chronic tendon degeneration or to a tendon tear.
  • Normal wear and tear. With aging, normal wear and tear on your rotator cuff can cause a deterioration of the cuff’s tendons and muscles, making them more prone to degeneration and injury. Calcium deposits or arthritic bone spurs can pinch or irritate the rotator cuff.
  • Poor posture. Slouching can cause a muscle or tendon to become pinched under the shoulder bones, especially during activity.
  • Falling. Using the arm to break a fall can result in a tear or bruise to the rotator cuff.
  • Lifting or pulling. Lifting or pulling heavy objects or doing so improperly can strain or tear tendons or muscles.
  • Repetitive stress. Repetitive overhead movement of the arms can stress rotator cuff muscles and tendons, causing inflammation and eventually tearing.

Pain can also occur in the knee from other diseases or conditions that involve the knee joint, bones, nerves, or soft tissue that support or supply sensation to the knee. Actually, the knee joint is the most common joint to be affected by rheumatic or autoimmune diseases.
