Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
Caused by the swelling of tendons connecting the muscles and bones in our shoulders, tendonitis of the rotator cuff is common for those with repetitive actions causing the inflammation. Some of the most common causes of rotator cuff syndrome are sports such as tennis, baseball, softball, football, weight-lifting and cross-fit. Rest and carefully curated stretching can help to minimize the pain while allowing the muscles supporting the shoulder to heal and regain strength.However, like most athletes,or devoted weekend warriorstime off the field or the gym is not an option. We focus on diagnosing the specific muscles involved through examination and muscle testing to properly treat and speed up the recovery process. Treatment options include but are not limited to: myofascial release, natural treatments to reduce inflammation, Kinesiotaping and strengthening exercises. Combination of these treatments can help to restore the function of the muscle and reduce the tension on the tendon in less time with long lasting results.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Caused by pressure on the median nerve (the one responsible for the movement and feeling of our thumbs and fingers excluding the pinky), carpal tunnel creates shooting pain, numbness, tingling sensations and swelling throughout our wrists and fingers.Many fail to see that carpal tunnel can also be related to a Pinched Nerve in neck. All areas need to be evaluated to make the proper diagnosis.
