Rotator cuff tears can be very common due to the stresses we put on this relatively delicate group of muscles and connective tissue. When doing everything from lifting a box to swinging a golf club, we rely on our rotator cuffs to perform the full range of motion required of our arms and shoulders.
If you’re suffering from shoulder pain related to a rotator cuff tear, it’s important to seek treatment from a qualified health care professional. By helping you learn techniques to stretch, strengthen and stabilize this important area, a physical therapist can provide effective rotator cuff tear treatment that helps the healing process and is designed to provide long-term wellness and relief.
At Armor Physical Therapy, we want to give you practical information about treatment options available to you. Read this brief overview of the steps you can take to find relief and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like to learn more.

Our friendly staff will make it as convenient as possible to schedule an appointment that fits the needs of your busy schedule. When you arrive we can help you complete any necessary paperwork and administrative steps and answer any questions you may have.
2. Undergo a full evaluation
Our highly skilled and experienced clinicians will review your full medical and treatment history, perform a thorough physical examination, ask questions about your lifestyle and symptoms and assess your movements. The goal is to determine the underlying causes of your pain and injury.
3. Receive treatment recommendations
Depending on the cause and severity of your injury and your unique individual needs, your therapist will help you develop a customized rotator cuff treatment plan. Physical therapy typically involves some combination of active and passive treatments such as manual therapy and therapeutic exercise.

Physical therapy takes time and commitment to truly be effective. This is why it’s important to consistently attend your ongoing appointments and follow any instructions for supplemental at-home treatment.
