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.

rotator cuff homeopathic medicine

Homeopathic medicines for rotator cuff injury. 

Ruta Graveolens, Arnica Montana, Rhus Tox, Bryonia Alba, Ferrum Met, and Sanguinaria Can are the top homeopathic remedies used to treat rotator cuff injury.

The four muscles that make up the rotator are known as supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis. The most injuries related to this area include strains, tears (can be partial or full thickness tear and may arise from acute injury or overuse), tendinitis (stemming from overuse), bursitis (inflammation of the bursa), and impingement (trapping of the rotator cuff tendons between head of humerus and acromion; it can result in inflammation of tendon or bursa of shoulder).

Causes of Rotator Cuff Injury

The primary cause for rotator cuff injury is the overuse of the rotator cuff. 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.

    • Hello Dr,

      I have supraspinatus tendinitis. I have severe pain in left arm and have difficulty sleeping and movements, this has been going on for a year. Over the year the usage of left arm is getting worse, have been asked to do Physiotherapy. I have also taken a lot of medication but no relief.

      Please suggest your treatment.

  13. I have pain in shoulder since 2 years. Last year my shoulder MRI showed that I have rotator cuff tear.
    At that time doctor suggested for me to take steroid injection but it did not. is Homeopathy medicine cure my problem. Please give me suggetion.

  14. Kathy Hathaway says:

    An MRI shows that I have a COMPLETE tear of my rotator cuff. It’s an accident, not overuse. Can homeopathy heal a complete tear? I don’t know if I should just opt for surgery because I don’t want to be disappointed that I can’t do my active things like kayaking and tennis after just using homeopathy! How can I wisely decide which way to go? Thanks much!

    • Kathy Hathaway says:

      Update: I used homeopathy plus physical therapy to heal my tear. I used homeopathy to heal the various parts of the shoulder that were damaged from my fall. Because it was a complete tear, it would never bring the parts of the rotator cuff back together but my other tendons/muscles/joints healed and became stronger with PT in order to take over the work of the no longer intact rotator cuff. Because I am older (70) I must do my PT exercises every day to stretch and maintain the strength that I gained in the physical therapy. The only thing have trouble with is playing pickleball, which requires fast, explosive shoulder movement.

      • Kathy, How long did your healing take? Did you do a combination water remedy for homeopathic treatment? If so, which remedies do you feel worked best? I have an injury from a skiing fall and hope to heal with PT and homeopathy as well. I wish you complete healing!
