Rotator Cuff Tendon and Subacromial bursitis impingement syndrome are the most common cause of shoulder pain, accounting for up to 65% of all Doctor shoulder complaints.
We can provide you the world’s best rehabilitation program –
69% improvement within 12 weeks.
Significantly, this success is similar to the results of arthroscopic decompression surgery at one year post surgery. Undertaking the Rotator Cuff tendon exercise program will improve you significantly, with 80% of people taking themselves off the surgical wait list.
Injuries and dysfunction of the shoulder are common and often disabling. They affect all age groups but are particularly common in individuals who are active in sport and in work or recreational pursuits that involve prolonged and repeated overhead activities.
The clinical Orthopaedic tests to diagnose shoulder pain have advanced significantly, as have Physiotherapy rehabilitation programs to treat shoulder problems.
Your corrective rehabilitation program will include
- Use of eccentric tendon strengthening exercises, as well as concentric exercises
- Focus on strengthening the rotator cuff muscles and the stabilising muscles of the scapula
- Correct shoulder joint capsule stretches
- Appropriate manual therapy; specific mobilisation of the shoulder joint and muscle tissue restrictions
- Provide followup review sessions to ensure correct technique of all exercises and as necessary progress the program, maintaining adherence and compliance
- Prepare a home based corrective exercise program; only when a client has achieved adequate pain relief and improved function
Advance Physiotherapy will provide you with the most advanced shoulder tendon rehabilitation exercises based upon proven evidence, enabling you to achieve the best results possible.
We have a focused intent to prevent the progressive degeneration of your Rotator cuff tendons through the use of the world’s best rehabilitation programs.
Shoulder Injuries and Arthroscopic Surgery
Rotator Cuff Reconstructive surgery
In the event of Orthopaedic arthroscopic surgery to repair your rotator cuff tendons, post-operative physiotherapy will help to quickly restore the full range of motion in your shoulder. We have extensive experience in the care and rehabilitation of postoperative rotator cuff tendon repair surgery having worked alongside some of Sydney’s most highly regarded surgeons.
The repair process after shoulder reconstruction surgery can often be difficult and slow if you do not have professional physiotherapy assistance. Our Physiotherapists at Advance Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Centre have extensive experience in assisting people through their recovery, leading the repair process and progressing the rehabilitation as required.
Contact us today to have one of our physiotherapists examine your shoulder and customise a course of post operative treatment that will suit your work and lifestyle.
Rotator Cuff Tendon and Rotator Cuff Muscles
The rotator cuff are the most important muscles with respect to the shoulder.
The rotator cuff is a set of four muscles – supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor – that blend together and surround the humeral head (the ball of the shoulder) to hold it within the glenoid (the cup of the shoulder) when performing everyday activities and specially overhead sporting activities.
Injury or structural fatigue of the rotator cuff muscles results in the loss of this ability to hold the humeral head centred in the glenoid, and the large deltoid muscle pulls the humeral head upwards causing “impingement
