Using Shockwave Therapy For A Rotator Cuff Injury

shockwave therapy rotator cuff injury west rydeRotator cuff injuries are painful and greatly impact the completion of activities in daily life. Shockwave therapy may reduce pain and recovery time for sufferers of such injuries, with some studies suggesting shockwave treatment could replace day surgery treatment for some patients.

What is a Rotator Cuff Injury?

The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles that surround the shoulder joint. They integrate to connect the shoulder socket with the upper arm bone.

Injuries to the area are typically present in individuals who complete repetitive arm motions above their head. This includes tennis or basketball players, painters, carpenters, and mechanics.

Rotator cuff injuries may also occur due to single injury trauma.

Shockwave Therapy Treatment

Shockwave therapy involves the application of high or low energy shockwaves to the affected area. The shockwaves promote regeneration and repair of the muscles, tendons and bones.

The use of shockwave therapy on rotator cuff injuries is shown to be highly effective for a number of reasons including:

– Reducing pain
– Improving ability to complete daily activities
– Improving range of motion
– Improving power

The treatment is also non-invasive, making it an excellent alternative to surgery. Patients are able to play sport, exercise and return to work directly after the treatment.

Most patients require three to six sessions, however, your physiotherapist will determine the best treatment plan for your injury.
