Rotator Cuff Tears

Rotator Cuff Tears and Shoulder Pain arise from a lack of range of motion throughout the “Shoulder Complex”.


Achieving full range of motion throughout the shoulder complex reduces stress and strain, protecting the rotator cuff from tears while eliminating shoulder pain.


The rotator cuff is a group of muscles that produce fine-tuned stability and balance at the shoulder joint.  It is easy to get very detailed because the shoulder is an amazing complex of parts and movement.  This post simply states that the rotator cuff works to keep the shoulder IN THE MIDDLE of the joint.


The shoulder is complex and capable of a large range of motion.  Because of this, it is easily damaged.  This damage occurs due to the shoulder joint being pulled from THE MIDDLE position.  So, keeping the shoulder in THE MIDDLE is GOOD.  Allowing the shoulder to GRIND AWAY FROM THE MIDDLE is BAD.


The pvc pass through exercise works in two ways.  First, it identifies where range of motion is lacking.  Second, it provides a mechanism to safely build full range of motion over time. 


Health & Performance Center treats shoulder rotator cuff tears by treating the tissue and the system.  Graston Technique and other soft tissue treatments increase blood flow and the healing response.  The rehab exercises restore full range of motion, providing stability and longevity of results.


The shoulder is designed to be strong and stable, yet flexible and adaptable.  This dichotomy leaves it vulnerable in comparison to other joints.  However, achieving a strong, healthy, and fully capable shoulder is possible.  In fact, it is critical.  A great shoulder complex leads to a slower degenerative process to all the arm and neck joints.


Mastering the rotator cuff, healing tears, and eliminating shoulder pain is difficult.  But, it is one worth it.  We guide you through the process.


Good Luck and #keepmoving
