Rotator Cuff Tears and SoftWave Therapy: A Non-Surgical Solution in Rochester, NY

Published November 22nd, 2023 by

Shoulder pain can be debilitating, especially when it's due to a rotator cuff tear. These injuries are more common than you might think and can affect anyone, from athletes to office workers. Traditionally, treatment options often involved surgery or lengthy rehabilitation. However, there's a groundbreaking alternative right here in Rochester, NY: SoftWave Therapy at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, led by Dr. Sam Camarata.

Common Causes and Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Tears

Rotator cuff tears typically result from either a traumatic injury or overuse. 

Here are some common causes:

Overuse: Repetitive overhead arm movements, as seen in athletes like baseball pitchers and tennis players, can gradually wear down the rotator cuff tendons, leading to tears.

Aging: As we get older, our tendons tend to degenerate and become less flexible, making them more susceptible to tearing.

Trauma: A sudden, forceful injury, such as a fall on an outstretched arm, can also lead to rotator cuff tears.

The symptoms of a rotator cuff tear can vary, but they often include:

Pain: Typically felt in the front of the shoulder and often worsens with arm movement.

Weakness: Difficulty lifting or rotating the arm, especially when lifting objects or reaching overhead.

Limited Range of Motion: Reduced ability to move the arm freely.

Cracking Sensation: Sometimes, you may hear or feel a crackling sensation when moving the arm.

Traditional Treatments vs. SoftWave Therapy

Traditional treatments for rotator cuff tears usually start conservatively with rest, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications. If these methods fail to provide relief, more invasive options like cortisone injections or even surgery may be recommended.

SoftWave Therapy offers a non-surgical, drug-free, and minimally invasive alternative that can effectively treat rotator cuff tears. Here's how it works:

Pain Relief: 

SoftWave Therapy helps reduce pain by breaking down inflammation and increasing blood flow to the injured area via angiogenesis.

Tissue Repair: 

The therapy stimulates the body's natural regenerative processes, activating stem cells to repair damaged tissue.

Improved Range of Motion:

By promoting tissue healing, SoftWave Therapy can help restore your shoulder's full range of motion, making daily activities easier.

No Downtime:

Unlike surgery, SoftWave Therapy requires no downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately after a session.

Dr. Sam Camarata, the pioneer of SoftWave Therapy in Rochester, NY, has successfully helped patients with rotator cuff tears regain pain-free shoulder function. Whether you're an athlete looking to get back in the game or someone who wants to enjoy everyday activities without shoulder pain, SoftWave Therapy can be a game-changer.
