Physiotherapy treatments and services at Physiotherapy First utilize a hand-on approach to release tension and tightness in the rotator cuff. This can be accomplished through manual manipulation, massage therapy, or electrical wave therapy.
Another form of treatment that could be beneficial is the use of hot and cold therapies. This treatment involves applying heat to the rotator cuff to increase blood flow or apply cold to the area to reduce blood flow and swelling.
Exercise therapy is another treatment prescribed for rotator cuff tendinopathy. Exercises are designed to help repair, rebuild, and strengthen the damaged muscles, tendons, and connective tissues. The objective of exercise is to help recover faster while reducing the risks of future injuries to the rotator cuff.
At Physiotherapy First, your physiotherapist works with you to develop a treatment and service plan that best suits your needs. The plan is adjusted as you recover from our injury to promote the best possible outcome to benefit you. Part of your treatment plan will also include education about the causes of your rotator cuff tendinopathy.
