Shoulder Injury Exercises
Every year, thousands of Canadians suffer from shoulder injuries. In this video, Dr. Hassan from HealthMax tells us more about it.
Possible Rotator Cuff Shoulder Injuries
The rotator cuff is composed of multiple muscles surrounding that shoulder joint. What happens is when there are imbalances occurring due to microtrauma, repetitive injury or even a direct injury to that area, wear and tear takes place. This wear and tear tends to cause conditions such as adhesive encapsulitis, calcific tendonitis and other relating shoulder injuries.
We have a team here at Health Max Physiotherapy that will help you in identifying what the issue is and what the correct treatment program is to help you get better.
Identifying the Shoulder Injury
Here, our team has diagnosed this patient with rotator cuff tendonitis. This exercise will help strengthen the muscle and achieve muscle balance, without utilizing any other shoulder muscle. Like any other, we have exercise patient education and proper form and technique is very important. Other exercises and stretching techniques may also be implemented based on the diagnosis of the doctor.
As you can see, exercise therapy is a key component when treating shoulder problems such as rotator cuff injuries.
