J-CLINIC for treatment of shoulder rotator cuff injuries in Bangkok

Hello, this is Sato from J-CLINIC, a physiotherapy and acupuncture clinic.

In this post, I’m going to talk about treating shoulder rotator cuff injuries.

Many clients diagnosed with shoulder rotator cuff injury or rotator cuff tear at a hospital come to J-CLINIC for treatment or postoperative rehabilitation.

What is a shoulder rotator cuff injury?

A shoulder rotator cuff injury (including shoulder rotator cuff tears) is when the threads of the rotator cuff muscles (the inner muscles of the shoulder) are torn. Some people think they have a frozen shoulder but are then diagnosed at the hospital as having a rotator cuff injury, usually after an MRI.

Common causes of shoulder rotator cuff injury

Shoulder rotator cuff injuries are commonly caused by
• age-related changes: as we age, the shoulder rotator cuff becomes more brittle and more easily damaged
• trauma, such as falling and landing on your shoulder or your outstretched hand, carrying a heavy object
• overuse in sports (such as golf, baseball) and work (such as hairdressing, carpentering)

Common symptoms of shoulder rotator cuff injury

When you have a shoulder rotator cuff injury, you may
• be unable to raise your arm forward or up, such as when doing housework
• wake up at night from pain or be unable to turn over
• experience pain when swinging down on a golf swing


Our treatments for shoulder rotator cuff injuries

At J-CLINIC, we offer a wide range of treatment options for your shoulder rotator cuff injury

Manual treatment

Manual treatment will relax the tension in your superficial shoulder muscles and deep trigger points to improve your body balance.

Motion and manipulation

Motion and manipulation will improve the range of motion of your shoulder joints. In addition, it improves elasticity while relieving soft tissue adhesions and stiffness.

Ultrasound and high voltage therapy

Ultrasound and high voltage therapy promotes cellular repair. It speeds up healing and relieves pain.


Acupuncture improves blood flow to the stiff muscle tissue that is causing you pain and limiting your range of motion. The improved blood flow will flush out the pain-producing substances collecting in the stiff areas. It also relieves tension in joints and muscle ligaments, giving you better a range of motion and relief from pain.

Taping therapy

Taping supports the deltoid muscle and helps alleviate pain.


We can also prescribe poultices to help relieve your pain.

Postoperative rehabilitation of shoulder rotator cuff tears

Some patients come to our clinic for rehabilitation after surgery for their shoulder rotator cuff tear.

Rehabilitation is important! Without postoperative rehabilitation, you may be left with a limited range of motion in your shoulder or with discomfort.


 At J-CLINIC, we use manual and electro therapy to help relieve your shoulder-joint pain and increase your range of motion. We also teach you exercises that will build flexibility and strength in the rotator cuff muscles.

* Strengthening the inner shoulder muscles (rotator cuff) using a TheraBand.

* Teaching self-care exercises using massage balls to keep the muscles around the shoulder flexible. When the muscles around your shoulder are stiff, it can put undue stress on the injured area. This can slow recovery and cause pain in other parts of the body, as you try to shield the injured shoulder.

TheraBands and massage balls are available at our clinic.


If you suffer from a shoulder rotator cuff injury or need postoperative rehabilitation in Bangkok, we invite you to contact us by phone, email, or Facebook.
