How to Fix “Rotator Cuff Tendinosis” (supraspinatus and infraspinatus)

September 13, 2021

I recently made 2 videos about rotator cuff tendinosis, which included “supraspinatus tendinosis” and “infraspinatus tendinosis”.

Both terms are very common findings on MRI reports and can be the underlying cause of shoulder pain.

If you have either of these types of tendinosis, you might be wondering how to fix it… and that’s what I’ll explain in this video!

Overall, most people with rotator cuff tendinosis won’t need surgery. And if you follow my advice in this video, you’ll have a good chance of getting rid of your pain and healing the involved tendons.

Successful healing of rotator cuff tendinosis involves following the “3 Phase of Recovery” (which is the lovely colored handout I’m holding in the video thumbnail).

How to Heal Rotator Cuff Tendinosis

->> Phase 1: Decrease pain and improve tissue healing

->> Phase 2: Increase strength and ROM

->> Phase 3: Return to full activity

When it comes to healing rotator cuff tendinosis, you want to pay special attention to that first phase, which focuses on tissue healing.

I’ll explain more in the video.

I hope it helps you with your shoulder pain!
