Rotator cuff related shoulder pain (RCRSP) is the third most common condition seen clinically and likely to be the number one mispronounced diagnosis! RCRSP is a complex condition surrounding a complex joint. We have over 70 orthopedic clinical tests for the shoulder joint and spend countless hours learning them trying to identify exactly what is causing this pain. Are these tests able to give us that information? In short, no and we will explain why later. The term RCRSP was born as an umbrella term encompassing subacromial pain (impingement) syndrome, rotator cuff tendinopathy, and symptomatic partial and full thickness rotator cuff tears. As complex as the joint and condition is, we hope to help you find simple solutions! In this post we will take you through tips/assessments/progressions that you will find in the [P]Rehab exercise library. The goal is to ensure the patients you are working with have fully prepared their shoulder complex to take on the demands of their environment!
