Conditions - Pain - Shoulder pain and rotator cuff injury

Daryl Massey PT, MPT  ALT-MED Medical and Physical Therapy, Elk Grove Village Il and serving the Chicago area
The rotator cuff is actually made up of a group of muscles the muscles (supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor) and their tendons in your shoulder. These muscles and tendons link the upper part of the arm bone with the shoulder blade and hold the ball of the upper arm bone firmly in the shoulder socket.
A rotator cuff injury pain may include inflammation and partial or complete tear of the muscles or tendons of the rotator cuff.
Common causes of a rotator cuff injury include falling, lifting and repetitive arm activities.
Some sports are greater risk of rotator cuff injury – baseball, volleyball, softball, gymnastics, cheer leading, etc.
Most cases of rotator cuff injury pain can resolve with proper therapy and time.  Rotator cuff injury pain can be successfully treated with ALT-MED physical therapy, massage, acupuncture and dietary supplements.

Daryl Massey PT, MPT has extensive experience with sports injuries at all levels of competition. She has treated elementary school, middle school, high school and division I college athletes from football, track, cross country, volleyball, dance, cheerleading, shot put and even javelin.

Her personal attention to the athlete, experience and knowledge base results in rapid and complete healing of sports-related injuries. Her four children are able to compete (have competed) at the highest level in football, track and field and volleyball because, in part, of her ability to quickly heal their injuries.

I was one of the many people suffering with back pain plus a herniated disc. The pain was so bad that I could not walk very far or sit for too long. Through "word of mouth" I heard of Dr. Patrick Massey. So I had my daughter make an appointment with the doctor....he recommended some exercises that were tailored for my body (and condition). I highly recommend Dr. Patrick Massey for back pain. Go and see him. What can you lose , only your back pain.
