Pain In Shoulders
Shoulder pain can stem from a variety of maladies making careful assessment and diagnosis critical. Repetitive strain, microscopic muscle tears, and bursitis are among the most common culprits, and they often are amenable to home treatment. However, early intervention is key to finding lasting pain relief.

Rotator Cuff Exercises
The rotator cuff in the shoulder facilitates the largest range of motion of any joint in the body. It is comprised of muscles and tendons that work in harmony to coordinate movement in both the shoulder blade and arm. When functioning optimally, the rotator cuff allows us to participate in a wide range of daily activities from chores and work tasks to sports and recreation. When injured, the rotator cuff can sideline us completely.
