ORTHOPEDIC REHABILITATION PROGRAM TREATMENT PLAN


Rotator cuff tears (post-operative/non-operative)


A rotator cuff tear is a tear of one or more of the tendons of the four rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder. A rotator cuff ‘injury’ can include any type of irritation or overuse of those muscles or tendons, and is among the most common conditions affecting the shoulder.


Program of treatment:


Faradic stimulation

To improve power of weak muscles

TENS Application

For pain relief by causing a mild electrical stimulation to the neural system that enhances production of beta endorphin and encephalin (pain killer).

Ultrasound

Allows pain relief by increasing extensibility of tendon, allowing micro message effect and vasodilatation of the blood vessels.

Laser therapy

Allows pain relief through acceleration of the inflammatory phase of the healing process, stimulating B endorphin secretion which is associated with inhibiting synthesis of prostaglandin, decreasing the conduction velocity  of the sensory nerve and stimulating the gate control to inhibit pain pathway.

Infra-red

to improve circulation

electromagnetic field

to decrease pain and inflammation

Hot / cold application

to decrease pain

Myofascial release

to decrease muscle spasm and improve body fascia

Strengthening exercise

to strength weak muscles

Stretching exercise

to improve flexibility of shorted muscles

Proprioceptive exercise

to regain joint receptor sensitivity.

Mobilization techniques

to improve R.O.M and decrease pain.

Kinesio Tapping

to improve circulation , decrease muscle spasm and support joints.
