Rotator Cuff Pain
Rotator Cuff Pain typically stems from irritation, inflammation, or injury to the group of tendons and muscles that surround the shoulder joint, known as the rotator cuff. Common causes include repetitive overhead movements, sports-related activities, or degenerative changes with age. The pain is often felt in the shoulder and upper arm, worsening during specific movements or at night.
Treatments will vary based on the cause and type of rotator cuff injury. Accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment are essential for effectively managing symptoms and getting back to doing what you love. At STRONG., we may recommend seeking help through physiotherapy, chiropractic, or massage.

As your pain subsides, working with a personal trainer to develop strength of the shoulder and upper back is often a valuable second step.
