Rotator Cuff Injuries & Why Western Medicine Isn't The Only Option in Bremerton WA

Chiropractic Bremerton WA Rotator Cuff Injuries

Rotator cuff injuries are among the most common injuries to the shoulder. Four muscles make up the rotator cuff and could be impacted in an injury to the area. Often rotator cuff injuries are due to overuse, whether the overuse occurs during a sport, job, or other repetitive activity. Contact us at our Bremerton WA chiropractic clinic today to learn more about Rotator Cuff Injuries.

Rotator cuff injuries can include tears/strains, tendinitis, or tendinosis. Strains occur when the muscle or tendon is stretched too much and experiences a small tear. Tendinitis is inflammation of the tendon and is typically a more acute injury. Tendinosis is a “wear and tear,” or
degenerative injury, which is often due to repetitive stress.

Often people seek care from their medical doctor after experiencing a shoulder injury. A person may be advised to take NSAIDs, get corticosteroid injections, or seek surgical care. But did you know that chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and nurse practitioners can help as well? At Bremerton Wellness, our providers work collaboratively to get you back to doing the
things you love after a shoulder injury.

Natural Treatment for Rotator Cuff Injuries In Bremerton WA

  • Chiropractic: after a thorough assessment, our chiropractors determine what treatment would be most effective. Often class IV laser therapy is effective in decreasing pain and inflammation
    while promoting healing. Manual therapy, or working on the muscles of the shoulder, can help to bring blood flow to the area and loosen tight areas.
  • Massage Therapy: our licensed massage therapists are well versed in the anatomy of the shoulder and use this to target areas of increased tension.
  • Acupuncture: acupuncture is a great source of healing for shoulder injuries. It can help with pain reduction and the flow of energy to the injured area.
  • PRP Injections: after an examination, our nurse practitioner may determine that platelet-rich plasma injections are right for you. PRP injections work by using your body’s own platelets to help heal the injured area.

Gone are the days of relying on medication that may have side effects, corticosteroid injections that can lead to cartilage loss, and surgical interventions. While these therapies may be necessary in the event of a complete tear or severe injury, it is essential to know that you have options. If you’re looking for noninvasive, natural solutions to your shoulder pain, book an appointment with one of our providers today!
