Our approach includes targeted exercises, physical therapy, and personalized care to aid healing and restore shoulder function.

Types of Rotator Cuff Injuries


Rotator Cuff Tear

This occurs when the tendons in the shoulder that make up the rotator cuff are partially or completely torn. It can be a result of repetitive overhead motions, aging, or acute trauma.

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis

This refers to the inflammation or irritation of the rotator cuff tendons, often caused by repetitive motion, overuse, or degeneration over time.

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis


1 1

Overuse and Repetitive Motions

Continuous overhead activities, such as throwing, lifting, or reaching, can strain the rotator cuff tendons, leading to injuries

2 2

Aging and Degeneration

As we age, the blood supply to the rotator cuff tendons decreases, making them more prone to tears and injuries.

3 3

Trauma and Accidents

Falls, direct blows to the shoulder, or sudden jerking motions can cause acute rotator cuff injuries.

Treatment Option

Non-Surgical Treatment Options :

Physiotherapy, particularly our renowned Pune Shoulder Rehab Program, has proven to be highly effective in managing rotator cuff injuries. Our specialized program combines targeted exercises, stretches, and strengthening techniques to improve shoulder stability, reduce pain, and restore range of motion.

Matrix therapy, another non-surgical treatment modality, involves the application of oscillating waves to the affected area. This therapy promotes tissue healing, reduces pain, and enhances overall recovery.

Manual therapy techniques, such as joint mobilization and soft tissue manipulation, may also be employed to alleviate pain, improve joint function, and enhance healing.

Surgical Options :

In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair severe or complex rotator cuff tears. Our skilled orthopaedic surgeons utilize advanced techniques, such as arthroscopy, to minimize invasiveness and optimize outcomes. Surgery aims to reattach the torn tendon to the bone and restore full functionality to the shoulder.

Post-Surgery Treatment

Following rotator cuff surgery, a personalized rehabilitation program is crucial for optimal recovery. Our team of physiotherapists will guide you through exercises and movements that gradually restore strength, flexibility, and stability to the shoulder joint. Physiotherapy Matrix, a specialized post-surgery program, plays a pivotal role in your recovery journey, ensuring a smooth transition back to your daily activities.

Our Pune Shoulder Rehab Program focuses on enhancing shoulder strength, range of motion, and stability through tailored exercises, manual therapy, and advanced modalities.
