What Are The Rotator Cuffs And How To Treat Them Without Surgery?

Shoulder muscles of scapula shown

Rotator cuff muscles are vital when it comes to stabilizing the shoulder joint. The glenohumeral joint, or in layman’s terms, the shoulder joint, is a multi-axial ball-and-socket joint. The “ball” portion of the glenohumeral joint (shoulder joint) is the rounded head of the arm bone, called the Humerus.

The “socket” portion is the dish-like part of the scapula (shoulder blade) forming the glenoid cavity or fossa. The ball-and-socket component of the shoulder joint is not as deep-seated as the ball-and-socket joint of the hip. As mentioned earlier, the cavity portion is more like a dish rather than a socket.

Therefore, it might be better to describe the joint as a “dish-and-ball for the sake of simplicity.” To better understand the shoulder joint, it is worthwhile to discuss the joint and its connective tissues (muscles and ligaments).

 

Shoulder Joint Motion & Mobility

Shoulder joint mobility is due to its depth and the attaching muscles combined. The shoulder joint is a shallow joint reinforced with encapsulating ligaments and mobilized by attaching muscles. For the shoulder joint to work unhindered, all structures must function within normal parameters.

As mentioned, the main shoulder joint is a dish-and-ball-like joint that allows us to move our arms freely in almost all directions. However, with great flexibility and the disproportion in the size of the “ball” to the “socket,” the shoulder joint is said to be the unstable joint of the human body.

The rotator cuff muscles comprise four distinct muscles, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and the subscapularis. Collectively, they are responsible for arm movements at the shoulder joint. The tendons of these muscles coalesce to form the rotator cuff muscles. Thus, ensuring the stability of your shoulder joint.

Neglect of minor issues in shoulder muscles leads to painful shoulders, impingement syndromes, and even degenerative changes. Don’t neglect the slightest pain in your shoulder. Call us today for the best conservative treatment of shoulders in Malaysia. Our advanced therapeutic technologies such as shockwave therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation coupled with targeted rehabilitation are the perfect remedy you need.

Supraspinatus Muscle

The supraspinatus muscle plays the initiator’s role in the abduction of the arm alongside the deltoid muscle. They both contain the same abduction power. The muscle originates from the Supraspinous fossa and inserts into the superior facet of the greater tuberosity of the Humerus.

Infraspinatus Muscle

This muscle lies inferior to the supraspinatus muscle as it originates from the infraspinatus fossa and inserts into the medial facet of the humeral greater tuberosity. The function of this muscle is to facilitate the external rotation of the shoulder.

Teres Minor Muscle

Originating from the scapula’s lateral border and inserting at the greater tuberosity’s inferior facet, the teres minor muscle also aids with external rotation.

Subscapularis Muscle

The largest and most influential of the rotator cuff muscles are the subscapularis muscle, enabling the shoulder’s internal rotation. About 53% of the cuff strength belongs to this muscle. It originates from the subscapular fossa and inserts into the lesser tuberosity of the humeral head.

Due to the intricacies of these muscles and their role, they are very susceptible to injury. Among the more common forms of damage would be rotator cuff tears and rotator cuff tendinopathy. Rotator cuff injuries of the shoulder joint are shared among all but more prevalent in sports. Traumatic injuries to the shoulder involving the rotator cuffs are most common among racket sports, such as tennis or badminton players. Gym-goers may also be susceptible, especially if they don’t warm up or push themselves too hard.

The second group of patients predisposed to rotator cuff tears is middle-aged and the elderly. Non-athletic tears in middle-aged persons or elderly patients are the results of degenerative changes. Degenerative changes are common in patients who ignore smaller shoulder discomfort or malfunction. These degenerative changes are progressive, often leading to tears with increased activity. Therefore, our advice is to fix even the smallest of shoulder pain, disorders, discomfort, or injury before you succumb to greater issues or larger tears of the rotator cuffs.

Tendons, Muscles & Ligaments Cause Of Frozen Shoulder Or Adhesive Capsulitis

Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis results from damage or injury to the rotator cuff or SITS muscles. The main symptom of a frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is an inability to move the shoulder freely. The majority of patients suffering from adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) will also complain of losing sleep.

Adhesive capsulitis is more common in females. It can lead to paralyzing pain and discomfort. Chiropractic Specialty Center® is the best spine and joint treatment center for frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis. So, before, visit us before you opt for steroid injections or shoulder surgery. Opt for the best non-surgical frozen shoulder treatment in Malaysia today.

Best Treatment For Tears In Muscles Of The Shoulders

Of course, the best treatment for any spine, joint, or sports injury is non-operative means. Surgery involves cutting, and as such, will always lead to a degree of soft tissue damage. On the other hand, effective non-operative means that are holistic will have longer-lasting benefits without surgical complications.

At Chiropractic Specialty Center®, we use a host of therapeutic methods and devices, including specialized trigger point therapy methods. Our methods of CSC physiotherapy can help restore proper function following an injury. Regardless of the type of shoulder injury, our clinical teams have the expertise and experience to treat your shoulder without drugs, injections, or surgery.

Steroid Injections For Shoulder Muscle Tear

Many surgical centers recommend steroid injections into the shoulder joint. An injection (steroid injection) may decrease pain for a few days or weeks, but it will never repair the damage. What is worse is that the steroid injected into the shoulder joint can cause degenerative changes in your shoulder, leading to premature wear and tear. Often, people who have had a shoulder injection end up having surgical intervention.

Should You Opt For Shoulder Surgery?

Contrary to common belief, rotator cuff surgeries are not that successful. The dirty little secret of rotator cuff surgery is that tear occurs following surgery. The subsequent tears are often larger and more dramatic. Although shoulder surgeries have become a standard procedure in many surgical settings, the success rate has not improved. The published research titled “Rotator Cuff Repair,” released in Vol 43, Issue 2, 2015, of the American Journal of Sports Medicine, related that tears often occur in about two years following the surgical intervention.

Therefore, we would encourage all our patients with a shoulder injury to seek non-surgical interventions as primary means. Re-tears occur mainly due to surgical intervention, which leads to fatty deposits along muscle fibers. These fat deposits are the leading cause of reinjury. If you have a rotator cuff tear or injury, visit one of our centers. Let our corrective clinical teams treat your shoulders without injections or invasive procedures. We have Malaysia’s top chiropractors, and physiotherapists will provide you with lasting non-surgical relief.
