What Is the Rotator Cuff?
The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that help stabilize the shoulder. Injury to the rotator cuff can happen over time due to overuse and strain of the shoulder or from a traumatic injury such as a fall.
Physical therapy can help reduce pain and restore shoulder ROM and function. Physical therapy will also help restore proper mechanics of the shoulder joint with emphasis on improving the strength of the scapular muscles, as well as the rotator cuff.
Physical therapy is often very successful in managing rotator cuff pain and can help some people avoid surgery.
