Understanding Rotator Cuff Pain

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, providing stability and facilitating movement. Rotator cuff injuries can occur due to overuse, trauma, or degenerative changes associated with aging. Common injuries include tears, strains, and tendonitis.

Dr. Sharma and her staff provide me with pain management in so many forms, and this clinic is the most valuable resource in providing me with better quality of life. Dr. Sharma truly cares and listens, and believes me when I talk about my experience and pain. I have followed her from two other clinics and I’m very glad I could! I can count on this clinic and I feel confident in the fact that they care, and that’s a great feeling to have with any doctor.

Dr. Sharma and the staff are very welcoming and supportive. The office is very organized and responds well to emergencies when they arise. I appreciate the calm and empathic approach that the clinic takes when dealing with pain. This clinic also consistently is getting in cutting edge treatments into the office that improve the wellbeing of the clients they serve. I would fully recommend treatment with Dr. Sharma and at Avella Injury and Pain Management.

Rachel Moxam

Our daughter has a degenerative disorder which involves both chronic and acute pain. Dr. Sharma has been instrumental in helping to manage our daughter’s pain; she listens to our daughter and has implemented a personalized, comprehensive pain management program, which she assesses and modifies as our daughter’s condition changes. Dr. Sharma has been a major part of our lives for a number of years now, and when she opened the Avella Injury and Pain Clinic, we followed her here.

    Chronic Pain Treatment for Rotator Cuff Injury

    While rotator cuff injuries may require medical intervention, managing chronic pain is essential for improving symptoms and restoring function.


      Over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen or NSAIDs can help alleviate pain and inflammation. Prescription medications may be necessary for more severe pain.



      Cannabis shows promise as a potential treatment for chronic pain, but its effectiveness varies among individuals, and more research is needed to understand its long-term effects fully.


      Corticosteroid Injections

      Injections of corticosteroids directly into the shoulder joint can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. These injections are typically used for short-term relief and may be combined with other treatments.


      PRP Injections

      PRP (platelet rich plasma) involves injecting a concentrated solution derived from the patient’s own blood, containing a higher concentration of platelets and growth factors, into the injured area to promote healing and reduce inflammation.



      Nerve block or trigger point injections into the affected area to reduce inflammation and provide temporary pain relief.


      Massage Therapy

      Massage therapy is a holistic approach to pain management that involves the manipulation of soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. It can be an effective complementary treatment for chronic pain conditions, providing relief from muscle tension, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation.



      A shoulder brace or sling may provide support and stability, reducing pain during activities and preventing further injury.



      In cases where conservative treatments fail to provide relief, surgical intervention, such as arthroscopic surgery to repair or reconstruct the torn tendon, may be necessary.
