Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Rotator Cuff Injury

The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and tendons that keep the head of the humerus (bone in the upper arm) in the shoulder socket. Rotator cuff helps stabilize the shoulder joint. The muscles in the rotator cuff help with the movement at the shoulder joint in various directions. Damage to any of the muscle or tendons of the rotator cuff is known as a rotator cuff injury. Rotator cuff injuries (both acute and chronic) can be effectively treated with homeopathy.

Sportspersons including tennis players, baseball players, and wrestlers who tend to use the rotator cuff excessively are at an increased risk of injury. A blow on the shoulder, fall on the ground, or an accident (such as on the road) also increases the risk of a rotator cuff injury. Older adults above the age of 40 years are also at increased risk.

Symptoms of a Rotator Cuff Injury

In case of rotator cuff injury, the symptoms like shoulder pain and decreased range of motion at the shoulder joint are prominent. Tenderness on the affected shoulder joint is also present. Pain may get worse by putting the arm over the head or behind the back. In most cases, worsening of the shoulder pain is noted at night time. Lying on the affected side also tends to exacerbate the pain. A clicking sound on moving the shoulder and weakening of the shoulder are some other symptoms.

    Good evening Dr.Sharma,
    I was just going through your article on rotator cuff injury
    Would like to apprise you about my condition
    I had a fall from the ladder, resulting in right shoulder dislocation which was set right by a surgeon with a six week sling .I am male ,age 74 plus
    After the opening of the sling my pain was not going instead of taking various allopathic medicines and physician exercises under the supervision of a physiotherapist.
    On doing an mri it was found that one of the tendon is broken and as per the surgeon only an operation can set it right.
    However, I consulted our local homeopathic doctor who in past also had helped me in treating my back pain.
    This time I am taking arnica 200, Rita 200, four pills twice a day along with 10 drops of symphytum officials b.d for last 7 days ,to continue for 15 days as per my doctor and then report
    My query is that do u think it will repair the tendon or do I need to add something more
    Of course my Physiotherapy with ift and exercises are going on under the guidance of a physiotherapist
    Kindly guide

    Thanks and with good wishes

    Hello Dr.Sharma,

    We are living in Toronto. My daughter is 12 years old and for the last 2 years she has been suffering with Supraspinatus and tendonitis on the left shoulder. The pain starts all of the sudden during the winter. Every year the pain is starting earlier than the year before. We have tried physiotherapy but it is not helping much. This year the pain is started last week in Oct.itself and the pain is on her right shoulder as opposed to left. The pain is the same as it was in the left side last 2 years

    I have tried some of the homeopathy medicines before but not as a course.

    I would appreciate if you can suggest some medicines, it would be great. I am not sure if you are visiting any time here in Toronto.

    The pain is intolerable and gradually increases everyday till the month of Mar /Apr.

    Thanks,
    Raja

  7. Have small partial tear to supraspinatus…pain and weakness when lying down to sleep … want to avoid surgical repair…what medicine would you recommend… thanks

    Homeo is my favourite one. I have only hope in homeo. I have the shoulder pain on both shoulders. Left is worse. Iam a teacher. I can’t even remove my t shirt some times. I can’t even comb my hair sometimes. I can’t raise my hand up completely. I had seen a Doctor but of no use. If I hold a fishing rod for few hours then my shoulder pain is worst. I don’t know what’s wrong with my rotatory cuff muscles. I want to see my shoulders work like earlier. Iam really tensed. I have the problem from almost 4 years with left hand shoulder. Right hand lately.. I don’t have diabetes or any other disease. My age is 33
