Rotator Cuff Issues
The “Rotator Cuff” is comprised of four muscles: Infraspinatus,
Supraspinatus, Subscapularis, and Teres Minor. Supra originates on the top
spine of the scapula. Infra originates along the broad, flat bottom of the
scapula. Subscapularis originates along the medial border of the scapula and
covers the anterior surface of the scapula. Teres Minor originates along the
lateral edge of the posterior scapula surface. All four insert on tubercles
on the head of the humerus. Primary purpose of the four is to hold the
humerus in the glenoid fossa of the shoulder joint (glenohumerol joint to be
technically correct). They all also perform specific muscle actions.
If the tendons become too badly stretched, shoulder subluxations or
dislocations result. If they become inflamed, one ends up with Rotator Cuff
Tendonitis. In addition, the bursa (the fluid filled sack covering the
joint) can become inflamed, resulting in bursitis.
The way I treat ANY of these conditions energetically is with the OIDE
technique – covering the Origin and Insertion points and running Directed
Energy through the muscle. One hand covers the origin points of all four
muscles. Fingertips of the other hand cover the insertion points.
The Rotator Cuff consists of four muscles. The entire shoulder complex is
made up of 18 major muscles. For chronic situations, it is a virtual
guarantee that there WILL be involvement with more than just those muscles
that are hurting.
