ache, pain, stiffness and discomfort in the shoulder.
Symptoms may be presented in the anterior, posterior
or lateral portions of the shoulder.
Cause of Symptoms: Rotator
Cuff / AC-Joint Injuries are most often
caused by overuse or blunt trauma directly to
the shoulder or to the upper extremity
in activities such as falling down and attempting
to catch ones self with an outstretched hand.
can cause micro tears, resulting
in inflammation and swelling of the associated
tissues. Swelling causes pressure on surrounding
tissues resulting in compression of the nerves
and resulting pain. This pain in turn causes
limited activity, allowing the injured muscles
to atrophy due to the trauma, and ultimately
resulting in a muscle imbalance when left unrehabilitated
for any length of time.
Rotator Cuff Injuries caused
by overuse result in one muscle group becoming
stronger than the other resulting in impingement
of associated tissues due to the joint being imbalanced
because the stronger muscle group(s) is pulling
too hard in one direction in comparison to its
antagonist or opposing muscle group.
In either case, although the reasons for injury
are different, the result is the same and can be
corrected in the same manner, by eliminating the
muscle and joint imbalance that exists. (Only if
rotator cuff muscles and bursa are not torn)
of Symptoms: FLEXTEND®-AC can
assist in reducing the symptoms of Rotator
Cuff Injuries by stretching
and lengthening the overly tight, restrictive
soft tissues in the anterior, posterior and
middle deltoid, thereby
reducing compression of the surrounding nerves
and blood vessels. The FLEXTEND®-AC
is the key to prevention, rehabilitation and
long term relief from Rotator Cuff Injuries.
