[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]For the impingement of the rotator cuff, typical home care pain relief techniques like resting and icing are almost always adequate. And some people also use pain relief medications during the recovery process from the rotator cuff injury. The shoulder, if that is where the rotator cuff injury occurred, may not feel the same for a period of time and may still exhibit some discomfort once normal activity is resumed, but these sensations normally dissipate within a few days. A rotator cuff injury that has resulted in a frozen shoulder is more difficult to treat and sometimes time itself is the only remedy. However, because of the discomfort and lifestyle issues presented, some people may opt for other rotator cuff injury pain relief treatments like steroid injections. Exercise, if possible, is also often recommended for this type of rotator cuff injury. Tears of the rotator cuff are often first treated with medicines, exercises, rest, ice and other non invasive techniques. However, then tears are not healing or are slow to heal, surgery may be the only form of treatment available.
One alternative rotator cuff injury pain relief treatment that is showing a lot of promise is Whole Body Cryotherapy. This treatment method combines the benefits of a traditional ice bath with new technology that provides an improved way of using cold therapy and maximizing its benefits in order to promote fast recovery and help heal and soothe injuries. Although cryotherapy for athletes is nothing new and professional athletes and olympians alike have used the technology for decades, the method’s use in modern medicine has been only more recent. Thought to provide benefits by stimulating the immune system of the body as well as prompting a whole host of healing physiological responses such as the release of feel good chemicals, cryotherapy may be very useful in a wide range of injuries including those affecting the rotator cuff.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mpc_vc_icon_column icon=”fa-lightbulb-o” color=”#1e73be” title=”Want to learn more about Whole Body Cryotherapy?” text=”What is Cryosauna and more facts about its benefits.” link=”http://cryotherapytoronto.ca/what-is-whole-body-cryotherapy-and-cryosauna/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mpc_vc_icon_column icon=”fa-question” color=”#1e73be” title=”Not sure if Whole Body Cryotherapy can help heal your rotator cuff injury?” text=”Contact us to get your questions answered!” link=”http://cryotherapytoronto.ca/contact-us/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mpc_vc_icon_column icon=”fa-credit-card” color=”#1e73be” title=”Know which cryotherapy package is right for you?” text=”Order your sessions online.

In the case of a rotator cuff injury where bursitis is the culprit for instance, this treatment method may help reduce painful inflammation and swelling and provide fast symptom relief. Cryotherapy is also thought to be very effective in cases of overuse injuries such as tendinitis, and may also provide instant pain relief and long lasting relief for people suffering from these conditions. Although a serious rotator cuff injury such as a tear requires medical treatment, evaluation and potentially repair, this condition too may benefit from the healing powers of extreme cold in terms of helping to manage painful symptoms in the meantime.[/vc_column_text]
