Depending on the extent of the injury this condition is treated as a tendonitis of the muscles in the shoulder that aid in rotation and overhead work. A
thorough evaluation is first done to assess strength and function of the shoulder. If surgery has been done for repair, range of motion is checked and therapy begun for restoring movement. A home program is developed
and monitored by the therapist. Strengthening and stabilization exercises for the specific rotator muscles are part of the rehabilitation process. Weights, Theraband, arm pulleys and other assistive devices are
commonly used to meet the goal of full movement and strength for the entire arm and shoulder.
