Inflamed Rotator Cuff

The rotator cuff comprises of four tendons that attach the four shoulder muscles to your upper arm. When there is an injury to any one of the rotator cuff muscles, the resulting pain and the loss of mobility in the injured shoulder can be severe.

Rotator cuff muscle injuries can be of different types. The muscles can tear due to injury or trauma, or the rotator cuff can become inflamed. When the rotator cuff becomes inflamed, the condition is referred to as tendinitis. This condition is characterized by chronic swelling or inflammation of the tendons either due to improper use, overuse or tendon irritation. This common problem affects the shoulder and is not something happens only to sports people.

An inflamed rotator cuff can bother the patient for some time and then might seem to disappear. However, an inflamed rotator cuff can be torn due to overuse and must not be taken lightly. Some people with an inflamed rotator cuff can develop calcium deposits or even abnormal growths in the bone that are called bone spurs. Either condition can aggravate the tendons, thereby causing weakness tear to the rotator cuff, either partial or full.

Many doctors overlook the seriousness of an inflamed rotator cuff. They treat the inflammation with anti-inflammatory agents or steroid injections.  When these anti-inflammatory drugs wear off, the inflammation occurs again when the patient throws a ball the next time.

When this happens, the tendon is pinched or impinged again and the pain returns, requiring another shot of the steroid anti-inflammatory.  The best way to treat rotator cuff inflammation is to strengthen the cuff muscles so that the head of the shoulder is held firmly in place. If the shoulder muscles don’t slip, inflammation will not occur.
