Successful Resolution of Rotator Cuff Syndrome
A male patient, age 66, came for treatment in August 2010. She suffered from shoulder arthritis in her right arm. Further diagnoses identified the rotator cuff syndrome in general and the calcific tendinosis of the rotator cuff in particular (could not lift arm above shoulder level). The patient incurred a severe pain level (8 out of 10) as well as a restricted range of motion. His pain would not allow him to receive continued sleep at night. He could not use his right arm at work.

Dr. Kucheran applied a combined treatment program composed of chiropractic adjustments on the cervical spine as well as transverse frictional massages, active relief on the right shoulder and electro laser acupuncture. At the end of the program herbal patches were applied for one week. The complete treatment lasted for a total of six months (2-3 sessions for the first three months, once a week for the last three months).
The results have been very positive. The pain level was reduced by 70% at first. The range of motion improved greatly. The application of the herbal patches at the end removed the remaining pain and provided the patient with a full range of motion. The patient has been very happy ever since.
