Description:

Rotator cuff injuries affect between 2 to 4 million Americans each year. They are often incurred during sports which involve throwing or overhead lifting but can also result from repetitive motion of a job, hobby, or for others reason, some are which are difficult to pinpoint.  The very term “torn rotator cuff” is quite familiar to any fan of football, baseball or weight training.  Despite being so frequently mentioned, the rotator cuff is poorly understood by most Americans.  This course will provide concise definition of the rotator cuff and other major components of the shoulder joint.  It will define the movements of the shoulder and the muscles produce those movements, and it will furnish the allied health professional with a simple approach to address structural imbalances which are often the root cause of rotator pain and injury.
