The most common, non-spinal sports injury treated in my office is Rotator Cuff Strain. However, this shoulder injury doesn’t only happen during a sporting event. It also occurs after lifting or carrying a heavy object like luggage, or performing landscaping activities. Symptoms can include difficulty lifting the arm away from the body causing pain, discomfort when pulling objects, and/or pain in the shoulder at night when sleeping. The pain is typically sharp and is centered at the top and/or back of the shoulder, and radiates down the side and back of the upper arm.
For easy exercises to do at home for a mild to moderate strain of the Rotator Cuff watch the video above. Always get clearance from your sports chiropractor before starting an exercise program after injury.
