What Is Rotator Cuff Tendinitis?

 

Rotator cuff tendonitis, often called shoulder tendonitis, is a common condition affecting the shoulder joint. The rotator cuff is comprised of four muscles that help stabilize the shoulder when it moves. However, there is a particularly poor blood supply to the rotator cuff, making it a fairly common site of injury for patients of all ages. Symptoms can include pain and weakness with lifting, performing overhead or reaching activities, or while sleeping. It is not unusual for a patient with rotator cuff problems to describe a history of several years of constant or intermittent symptoms.

Physical therapy treatment for rotator cuff tendonitis includes a combination of modalities (moist heat, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and ice) and soft tissue mobilization/massage to aid in the healing process. Treatment will also focus on range of motion and stretching to restore flexibility as well as strengthening exercises to develop the rotator cuff and surrounding muscles. Patients generally begin to see an improvement in their condition within the first month and usually make a full recovery within two to three months. However, if tendonitis is not addressed it can progress to a tear, which can make rehabilitation more challenging and may even necessitate surgical intervention. The good news is rotator cuff surgery followed by rehabilitation performed by a qualified physical therapist usually has a good outcome and allows patients to return to their active lifestyle.

My Physicians Have Their Own Physical Therapy Practice. Can I Still Come to Harrison Physical Therapy?

 

The short answer is YES. Any time physical therapy is ordered, you the patient/customer have the legal right to choose the place that you feel will give you the best care available. However, some of our previous patients have wrongfully assumed that they are not able to attend our facility because the treating physician has recommended their own or another facility. A physician can recommend that you see the physical therapist(s) working for them, but they cannot force you to attend their own practice. You have the right to choose which physical therapy practice you would like to attend.

In our experience, the area physicians highly respect Harrison Physical Therapy and they have not had any problems with patients requesting to be treated at our facility. In fact, we have treated many of the area’s physicians and nurses and they themselves can attest to the outstanding care we provide. At Harrison Physical Therapy there is a reason that our most recent survey indicated that 98% of our patients felt that their problem or complaint “greatly improved.” Come see why are we the leader in rehabilitation in the Hudson Valley.

Got an injury? Come see us first!

 

Did you know that New York State has direct access to physical therapy?  Patients can now attend up to 10 treatments within 30 days without a prescription. If you have an injury, ache, or pain that is limiting your ability to enjoy life to its fullest, call now and do not delay your treatment.

For the most part, the majority of non traumatic injuries should start with physical therapy.  If  physical therapy fails, then the use of medications, injections, MRIs, and surgery come into play.  Having treated thousands of patients over the past twelve years, Harrison Physical Therapy has worked with nearly all of the specialists in the area who treat musculoskeletal injuries, and we can help guide you through the process of choosing a specialist if necessary. We can help you answer questions like: What type of specialist do I see?  An orthopedist, physiatrist, neurologist, pain management specialist, rheumatologist, or podiatrist?  If I have a shoulder injury or a back injury, do you recommend the same person? We will help direct you to the person who we have seen the best results from and who we feel can help you with your specific need.  At Harrison PT, we help you get results!
