If you have shoulder pain at night, you know how disruptive it can be! Inflammation within your shoulder and usually in the region of the rotator cuff muscles is a leading cause of night pain.

Using specific motions and specific points, a massage therapist target individual muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.

Usually, a rotator cuff can heal in 2 to 4 weeks. But if your tendinitis severe, it could takes months. If the pain is getting in the way of your daily life or you injure yourself again, your doctor might suggest: Steroids.
