What is a rotator cuff injury?

A rotator cuff injury is when a tendon in your shoulder has tiny tears in it or is inflamed and hurts. It’s usually caused by overuse or general wear and tear. This can be a sub-type of tendinosis or tendinitis, this type of shoulder pain is more common in people over age 30. If it’s not treated, it can lead to stiffness or weakness in your shoulder and other long-term problems.


  • Swelling and tenderness in the front of your shoulder
  • A “clicking” in the shoulder when the affected arm is raised over the head
  • Loss of strength or range of motion
  • Joint stiffness


  • Repeatedly using your arms, especially in movements raising the affected arm above the head
  • Not giving the rotator cuff muscles enough time to rest after overuse
  • Slumping forward
  • Having stiffness in your shoulder socket joint from an injury


  • The R.I.C.E (rest, ice, compression, elevation) method is a simple self-care technique that helps reduce swelling, ease pain, and speed up healing.
    • Rest: Pain is your body’s signal that something is wrong. As soon as you’re hurt, stop your activity, and rest as much as possible for the first 2 days.
    • Ice: Apply an ice pack for 15-20 minutes every two to three hours during the first 24 to 48 hours after your injury
    • Compression: Wrap the affected area with an elastic medical bandage to prevent swelling. You want it to be snug but not too tight.
    • Elevation: This means raising the sore body part above the level of your heart. Doing so reduces pain, throbbing, and swelling. The CDC recommends you keep the injured area raised whenever possible, even when you’re not icing it.

  • Over-the-counter medicine. Anti-inflammatory pain relievers like aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen
  • Heat. Once your pain starts to go away, you can use a heating pad to lessen any stiffness in your shoulder.
  • Light stretching

You've come to the right place

  • Ultrasound is a great choice to treat Rotator Cuff injuries and pain and has been used in clinics for decades.
    • Ultrasonic sound waves are pulsed into the affected and inflamed shoulder joint and surrounding tissues at a million vibrations per second.
    • The sound waves penetrate the skin and surface layers causing the soft tissue to vibrate. This produces increased blood flow to the area to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation and thereby relieve pain.
    • Increased blood flow also delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the tissue, removes cell waste and aids healing. Regular ultrasound therapy on your rotator cuff injury relieves pain and speeds the healing process.
    • Ultrasound is a drug free and proven modality.

How to use your Sonic Relief to treat Rotator Cuff Injuries and Conditions:

  • Apply a quarter size dollop of ultrasound gel over the area of pain around the shoulder (palpate or push your fingers into the shoulder area to find the area of pain).
  • Turn on the Sonic Relief device to the “high” setting.
  • Apply the sound head directly over the gel and move slowly in a small circular motion no wider than 3 – 4 inches.
  • Add more gel if the gel begins to dry out.
  • Sonic Relief will shut off after 10 minutes at which time the treatment is complete.
  • Wipe the gel from skin and the sound head with a soft cloth or paper towel.
  • You may treat multiple areas one after the other – ie, front of shoulder followed by back of shoulder, and left side, right side as needed.
  • Put the Sonic Relief back in the charger to be ready anytime you need it for rotator cuff or any other soft tissue pain or injury.
  • Treat each area up to 3 times per day for 2 weeks.  Then treat as needed.
  • Good idea: keep your Sonic Relief by your bedside.  Do your treatment before you go to sleep for a chance at a pain free night. Then first thing in the morning  to start the day off right.  Then try to get a 3rd treatment in during the day – either before or after an activity that generally exacerbates your pain (before working with your hands or lifting).

Use as directed and it will help! It’s worth the money!

Got Sonic Relief about 8 months ago due to extreme shoulder pain in both shoulders. It was hard to sleep, this went on for months! A lot of good rest did absolutely nothing! I hit the internet and found this little device, Sonic relief worked for my shoulder pain! Then my wife had shoulder and elbow pain running down to her finger tips. To me it acted like a nerve problem, the doctor gave her some worthless medication so we then used sonic relief around the side of her neck and shoulder for relief and it worked!If you have joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain, use as directed and it will help! It’s worth the money! Or enjoy your pain as is. 🙂
