Shoulder Rotator Cuff Tear & Tendinitis

Chiropractic Care for Rotator Cuff Tear in Kansas City

Rotator cuff tendonitis develops over time as an acute injury becomes increasingly irritated.

The rotator cuff consists of 4 main small muscle groups that provide stability and improve the overall function of the shoulder. The muscles include the infraspinatus, teres minor, supraspinatus, and subscapularis. Each muscle or muscle groups have a different function with the shoulder. Rotator cuff tendonitis leads to abnormal shoulder movement and compensations that further create the dysfunction within the shoulder joint.
