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.
