Nutritional treatment for rotator cuff tears

By Dr. Robert G. Silverman

I treat a lot of tennis players with shoulder pain, usually from rotator cuff issues. My goal is always to get them back on the court quickly without drugs, injections or surgery—and to keep them there by avoiding re-injury. For fast, effective, non-drug treatment, I rely on some proven nutritional supplements that work extremely well to help painful shoulders heal.

To understand why tennis players are plagued by shoulder injuries, let’s look at the way your shoulder is put together.

Your shoulder joint is easy to injure because it’s complicated. It’s made up of three bones: The upper arm (humerus), shoulder blade (scapula) and collarbone (clavicle). A number of ligaments attach the bones to each other. In addition, four muscles from your upper arm and back connect to the shoulder bones. The ball of the humerus is held in place in the shoulder blade socket by the rotator cuff—the area where the tough tendons of all four muscles come together to cover the head of the upper arm bone and attach it to the shoulder blade. So, your rotator cuff basically holds your shoulder joint together.
