LET'S REMEMBER WHY PHYSIOTRAINING FOCUS ON PREVENTION OF INJURIES THROUGHOUT THE CLASSES:
"Symptoms of a rotator cuff injury include shoulder pain, especially during movement or when sleeping on the affected side, tenderness or weakness, and loss of shoulder mobility. A click or pop may also be heard or felt when the shoulder is moved. Movements that involve overhead motion, such as getting dressed or combing hair may become difficult and painful after this type of injury...Exercising the shoulder should begin slowly to prevent stiff joints...Surgery may be necessary for younger patients with small tears that can be successfully repaired to reduce the probability of the tear getting progressively worse. Tears caused by acute, severe trauma should be surgically repaired immediately.
Preventing a rotator cuff injury is much less painful than treating one. Regular shoulder exercises can not only strengthen muscles and tendons, but also protect the shoulder’s range of motion. Other ways to help prevent injury include maintaining good posture and taking breaks at work or play to rest the shoulder if the job or
activity is physically demanding. " CORAL GABLES HOSPITAL
