Rotator Cuff

Rotator Cuff Injury

The rotator cuff is a collection of four muscles (infraspinatus, supraspinatus, subscapularis, teres minor) that work to stabilize the shoulder joint. An injury to any of these muscles can cause extreme pain with movement of the arm in a specific direction or all directions and can severely restrict your range of motion due to inflammation around the joint. This injury can occur as a result of a trauma, or from wear-and-tear due to repetitive movement.

Laser Therapy improves circulation to the shoulder, reduces inflammation, pain, and restrictions to movement caused by the injury. It fixes the rotator cuff injury by allowing the tissue to repair at an accelerated rate.
