Rotator Cuff problems are exceedingly common.   Possibly the most common of these is Rotator Cuff Tendinosis.   The four muscles that make up the Rotator Cuff surround the shoulder, allowing you to rotate your arm in virtually any direction.  The shoulder’s high level of mobility means that it is unstable.

This instability puts the shoulder at risk for several bad things.  Some of these I cannot help you with; bone spurs, dislocations, separations, labral tears, etc.  However, many shoulder problems respond beautifully to TISSUE REMODELING.  Quite frequently Fascial Adhesions are confused with Rotator Cuff Tendinosis.  Because the treatment for both is almost identical, this is NOT A PROBLEM.

Although there are four muscles that make up the Rotator Cuff (Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor, and Subscapularis), most cases (research says as much as 95%) of Rotator Cuff Tendinosis are found in the Supraspinatus Tendon. This is often called “Shoulder Impingement,” and unless there are bone spurs that are chewing on the muscle, it can almost certainly be helped with Tissue Remodeling. 

Bear in mind that I think the 95% figure given by experts is too high.  Although Supraspinatus Tendinosis is far and away the most common of the Rotator Cuff tendinopathies, I would estimate that more than 25% of my Rotator Cuff patients have a primary Infraspinatus problem.  On top of this, it’s common to see BICEPS TENDINOSIS misdiagnosed as a Rotator Cuff problem.  To get an idea of how effective my method of treatment is, take a peek at THIS PAGE.
