How To A Sure Stop! On Rotator Cuff Pain
Rotator Cuff pain is caused by many things and for many reasons. But the biggest reason for this pain is the actual "rotator!"
The rotator cuff is a group of 4 small muscles inside your shoulder joint which hold your shoulder together. They keep the upper arm, the collar bone, the shoulder blade (scapulae) and upper chest, and hold the upper arm into the shoulder joint socket itself. They alsohelp rotate the arm (hence the name) within the shoulder, and assist with raising the arm laterally.
The four muscles are:
Supraspinatus: helps with lifting the arm.
Infraspinatus: rotates the arm externally.
Teres minor: rotates the arm internally.
Subscapularis: holds the armwithin the shoulder socket.
So why, would I bore you with all of this medical jargon.Â "ToÂ put you to sleep...No!" But to stress upon you that the rotator shows wear and tear on even the most careful person. It'sÂ made up of small muscle fibers that are easily torn!
So this is the plan to say "bye bye" to the pain!
1) Rest - Relax!Â If you do a lot of overhead,demanding work STOP!Â In fact focus on meditation if you can,warm bathes,and 6-8 hours of sleep for the next few weeks!
2) Ice - 10 minutes in the morning and 10 and night will do it.Â Ice decreases inflammation
3) Stretch - Stretching increases bllod flow which in truns increases nutrient transport and oxygen which is much needed for a torn rotator!
4) Strengthen - Any muscle will weaken if you aren't putting it through it's daily workout.Â So keep this in the back of your head when rehabbing!
