HOW CAN I TREAT ROTATOR CUFF TENDONITIS?
Rotator cuff tendonitis refers to inflammation or irritation of the muscular tendons that are responsible for shoulder movement and stability. This condition is often referred to as a shoulder impingement and is caused by repetitive loading of the shoulder joint under load. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness and reduced range of movement.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality braces and supports are designed with medical-grade compression to help keep the shoulder joint stabilised and secure to target the symptoms of tendonitis. The soft knit delivers the ultimate comfort and has supports embedded to provide an intermittent massage effect for improved enhanced blood circulation for healing. This added support will allow you to continue with doing everyday activities such as reaching for objects with minimal pain and restrictions.
HOW TO MANAGE ROTATOR CUFF TENDONITIS?
- Physical therapy. Your physiotherapist may prescribe you with specific stretching and strengthening exercises for your rotator cuff muscles
- Take time to rest your shoulders from any activities that may stress your joint such as overhead reaching
- Ensure adequate warm up and cool down prior to exercise
- Any severe or persistent pain that is related to shoulder instability should be investigated by your doctor or physiotherapist
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense or persistent shoulder pain.
