Torn Rotator Cuff Treatment

Tearing a rotator cuff is extremely painful and requires a delicate approach when considering treatment options.
Often referred to as “Pitcher’s Shoulder,” torn rotator cuff injuries often develop slowly over time as a result of consistently applying stress and pressure to the shoulder area.
While this is the most common cause of torn rotator cuffs, they can also develop as a result of a sudden jerking motion, perhaps caused by a car or slip and fall accident.
If you tear your rotator cuff, contact our team of experienced Lithia Springs Chiropractors to schedule a free consultation or a complete examination.

What is a Rotator Cuff?

Your rotator cuffs consist of multiple tendons and muscles that surround your shoulders and are responsible for allowing your arms to move in various directions, as well as remain in place.
Because of your rotator cuffs, your arms serve as the most flexible parts of your body, allowing you to turn them in just about every type of direction.
However, this kind of flexibility and freedom also makes your rotator cuffs vulnerable to stress, inflammation, and tears.

Torn Rotator Cuff Caused By Car Accidents

When you are involved in a car accident, your immediate reaction is to try and protect yourself by placing your arms in front of your head and chest.
Even though this type of response is instinctive, it also causes you to tense up, making you more vulnerable to tissue damage and other injuries.
This situation takes place on a daily basis and is why our Lithia Springs Chiropractors treat so many patients who tear their rotator cuffs.

Symptoms of a Torn Rotator Cuff

Common symptoms connected to torn rotator cuff injuries include:

  • Sharp pain
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Significant weakness in your shoulder(s)
  • Tenderness/sensitivity
  • Inability to move your arm(s)

If you are in an accident and notice your shoulders cracking, this is one of the most common signs of a torn rotator cuff.
