The rotator cuff is a group of four tendons that attach their shoulder muscles to the top of the bone in the upper arm and together help to stabilise the shoulder. They are: supraspinatus; infraspinatus; teres minor and subscapularis. The most commonly affected tendons are supraspinatus and infraspinatus but all the rotator cuff tendons may be involved in impingement syndrome.

Problems with the rotator cuff tendons may be due to injury or overuse and physiotherapy can usually help as outlined under the individual tendinopathy below.

I visited Audra Rackauskaite at Atkins Practice in November 2015 after anterior cruciate ligament surgery in March 2015. I had tightness around the gastrocnemius and hamstring tendon heads which I damaged in injury. Audra was very good at relieving my tightness and pain through various techniques including STR. She aided my recovery from training by relieving tension in my quadriceps, calves and hamstrings.

Her attention to detail was great and she allowed me to increase my levels of rehabilitation all the way back to full training. She as helped me immensely on the road to recovery and competing at Rio 2016.

Thank you Audra.
