I recently started working with Magenta and I couldn't be happier with my progress so far. Magenta is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and caring. She took the time to thoroughly assess my condition and tailored her treatment plan to my specific needs (lower back pain). Her positive attitude and encouragement made the sessions enjoyable, even when the exercises were challenging. Thanks to Magenta, I have seen a significant improvement in my mobility and overall well-being. I highly recommend Magenta to anyone in need of physiotherapy services.

I have been very impressed with the therapy I’ve received by Magenta. She has helped with many of my pregnancy issues including lower back, neck and hip pain. She has a wealth of knowledge and is constantly up-skilling herself to ensure she has the most up to date practises. For me, she has used a combination of massage and giving me exercises to do at home. Not only that, but she has a wonderful disposition and is always happy to chat and see how I’m getting on. She has been there throughout my second and third trimester and I couldn’t be more grateful!
Thank god for Kurt and Kanvi. Without them I’d be in big trouble! Huge help with bad hip, back and neck pains. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Magenta/Danielle! Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and all-around lovely people. They gave me very helpful advice/support for strength and flexibility training, including deep tissue massages and acupuncture during the sessions. Without them, I would not have been able to recover from my IT band injury before my ultramarathon this summer.

I had a very positive experience working with Magenta on my rehabilitation following a tri-malleolar ankle fracture and surgery. It was a long and tricky recovery journey, but Magenta's professionalism, advice and positive attitude were extremely helpful in dealing with the whole thing. Thank you, Magenta and One Body LDN 🙂

I was on a week's business trip to London and had severe recurrence of slip disc induced sciatic pain in my left leg. In order to prep for the long return trip back to India the next day, I went for 1 session to One body LDN. Mridul, the physio, did a great job in understanding my problem, the pain areas and providing a deep tissue massage that helped me manage my pain during the return flight. Thanks Mridul and One body LDN!

Appendix key terms and concept for rotator cuff tears

X-ray: Rotator cuff tears are a common injury that can cause pain and weakness in the shoulder. X-rays may be used to check for arthritis or bone spurs that could be contributing to the problem. However, an MRI or ultrasound is more useful for identifying tendon tears. Treatment methods depend on the severity of the injury, age, and activity level of the patient. In addition to x-rays, medical history and physical examination are also important in diagnosing rotator cuff injuries.

Swelling: Rotator cuff tears can cause swelling and pain in your shoulder. To minimize the swelling, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be used. Physical therapy with strengthening and stretching exercises can also help to reduce the swelling and pain. In some cases, steroid injections may be recommended to further ease the pain and swelling in the affected area. A combination of treatments including medication, physical therapy, and home exercises can effectively treat rotator cuff tears.

Shoulder pain is a common symptom of rotator cuff tears. This injury affects the muscles and tendons in your shoulder can make it difficult to raise and move your arm. Rotator cuff injuries are more common in older individuals and those who are active. Treatment options for rotator cuff injuries include both surgical and non-surgical approaches, depending on the severity of the injury. Proper diagnosis and treatment can help alleviate shoulder pain and improve mobility.

A torn rotator cuff is a common injury, especially among older individuals. Rest, physical therapy, and pain relievers can help in most cases. However, surgery may be necessary to reattach the torn rotator cuff. The main symptom of a rotator cuff injury is pain at the top and side of your shoulder. You may also experience difficulty raising your arm or weakness in your shoulder. If you have any of these symptoms, it’s important to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

A full-thickness rotator cuff tear is a complete separation of the tendon from the bone. This type of tear can be caused by a traumatic injury or degeneration due to aging. Symptoms may include pain, weakness, and limited range of motion in the shoulder. Treatment options depend on the severity of the tear and may include physical therapy, medication, or surgery. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have a rotator cuff tear to prevent further damage and promote healing.

Partial tear: Rotator cuff tears can be either complete or partial. A partial tear occurs when the tendon is frayed or slightly damaged but still somewhat attached to the arm bone. On the other hand, a complete tear involves the tendon fully separating from the bone. As damage progresses, a partial tear may eventually result in a complete tear, which can occur when lifting heavy objects. It’s important to seek medical attention if you suspect a rotator cuff injury, as early treatment can help prevent further damage and improve recovery outcomes.

Healthcare provider: If you suspect that you have a rotator cuff tear, you should visit a healthcare provider who will perform a physical exam to check for shoulder tenderness, range of motion and arm strength. Certain diagnostic tests may also be performed to confirm the diagnosis such as an x-ray to check for arthritis or bone spurs. It is important to seek professional advice from a qualified healthcare provider for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.

Nonsurgical treatment: Rotator cuff tears can be treated with nonsurgical options for many patients. Strengthening the shoulder muscles through physical therapy and other treatments can improve function and decrease pain. Surgery is not always necessary, and in some cases, it may not improve shoulder strength unless the injury is severe. Nonsurgical treatments such as rest and physical therapy are effective in about 80 to 85% of patients, making it a recommended option by many doctors before considering surgery.

Soft tissues: Rotator cuff tears are a common injury that affects the soft tissues in the shoulder. These soft tissues include tendons, muscles, and bursas. If left untreated, a rotator cuff tear can lead to weakness or even permanent loss of movement in the shoulder. Doctors use various tools such as MRI or ultrasound scans to diagnose and identify the severity of tears in soft tissues. X-rays may also be used to rule out other causes of shoulder pain. Treatment for a rotator cuff injury depends on its severity and may include rest, physical therapy, or surgery.

Rotator cuff muscles: Rotator cuff muscles are a group of four muscles that help to keep your shoulder joint stable and functional. These muscles play an important role in the movement of your arm and shoulder, allowing you to lift and rotate your arm in various directions. Repetitive stress from activities like weightlifting, baseball, tennis, rowing and even routine chores can cause overuse tears in these muscles and tendons. It is essential to take proper care of your rotator cuff muscles to avoid such injuries and maintain shoulder mobility.

Pinched nerve: Rotator cuff tears can be difficult to diagnose as symptoms can be similar to those of a pinched nerve or arthritis. Doctors will typically perform a physical examination to check for areas of pain and tenderness, test the range of motion and strength of the shoulder joint, and may order imaging tests such as x-rays or MRI. It is important to rule out other conditions before diagnosing a rotator cuff tear. If a tear is suspected, treatment options may include physical therapy, rest, or surgery depending on the severity of the tear.

Outstretched hand: Rotator cuff tears can occur due to injury or degeneration of the tissues. Injury can happen suddenly when falling on an outstretched hand or due to repetitive activities. Aging and degeneration of tissues can also cause rotator cuff tears. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience pain or weakness in your shoulder, as untreated rotator cuff tears can lead to further damage and even permanent disability. Treatment options may include physical therapy, medication, or surgery depending on the severity of the tear.

A full-thickness tear of the rotator cuff is a complete tear or rip in the group of four muscles and tendons that stabilize your shoulder joint. This type of tear involves detachment of part of the tendon from the bone, which can result in significant pain, weakness, and limited range of motion in the affected shoulder. To diagnose a full-thickness rotator cuff tear, a physical examination and imaging studies are typically conducted to determine the extent of the injury and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment options may include rest, physical therapy, medications, or surgery depending on the severity of the tear.

Arthroscopy: Rotator cuff tears can be repaired with arthroscopy, which involves using special instruments to look inside the shoulder joint and fix the tear through small cuts. This minimally invasive procedure helps reduce pain and recovery time compared to open surgery. Biomechanical concepts of rotator cuff repair are also being studied to improve surgical techniques. Common symptoms of a rotator cuff tear include pain, weakness, and crepitus when moving the shoulder in certain positions. If you suspect a rotator cuff tear, it is important to seek medical attention for proper diagnosis and treatment options such as shoulder arthroscopy.

Tendinitis: Rotator cuff tendinitis is a common injury that affects the shoulder area. It is caused by overuse, wear and tear over time, or acute injury. The most common symptoms of rotator cuff tears include pain at rest and at night, weakness when lifting or rotating your arm, and crepitus or a crackling sensation when moving your shoulder in certain positions. Physical therapy can help strengthen the shoulder area and prevent further injury. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the torn tendon or muscle.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a rotator cuff tear is a common injury that can cause pain and weakness in the shoulder. Treatment options include physical therapy, rest, and medication. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the tear. It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Rotator cuff problems, including tears, are common among millions of people in the United States every year. While the problem affects people of all ages and genders, it is more common in adults. A rotator cuff tear can cause pain and disability, making it difficult to lift your arms or reach upward. Physical therapy can help prevent shoulder injuries and provide relief for those suffering from rotator cuff tears. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect a rotator cuff problem as surgery may be necessary in some cases.

Tendinopathy: Rotator cuff tears can be caused by tendinopathy, which refers to various conditions affecting the tendons around the shoulder. Overuse of the rotator cuff muscle can cause irritation and strain, leading to tendinitis (acute) or tendinopathy (chronic). Symptoms may include tenderness over the greater tuberosity, pain in the anterior shoulder, and radiating arm pain. Differential diagnosis is important to distinguish between rotator cuff tears, tendinopathy, and bursitis. Arthrography or ultrasonography can help make this distinction. Proper treatment and rehabilitation are essential for managing rotator cuff tears caused by tendinopathy.

A dislocated shoulder is one of the potential causes of a rotator cuff tear. This can happen due to an accident, such as a fall or lifting something too heavy with a jerking motion. It can also occur with other injuries, like a broken collarbone or wrist fracture. Weightlifters are also at risk of developing this condition. In addition to shoulder dislocation, rotator cuff tears can occur over time as the tendon wears down with age and use. Symptoms of rotator cuff tendonitis include inflammation and irritation of the tendons and muscles in the shoulder joint.

Upper arm bone The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, attaching the upper arm bone (humerus) to the shoulder blade. These muscles and tendons play a crucial role in stabilizing and moving the shoulder joint. Rotator cuff tears can occur as a result of injury or overuse, leading to pain and limited range of motion in the affected shoulder. Treatment options for rotator cuff tears may include physical therapy, medications, or surgery, depending on the severity of the tear and individual patient factors.

Top of the shoulder: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the top of the shoulder joint, providing stability and allowing for movement. Rotator cuff tears are common injuries, especially in people over 40 years old. Degenerative tears can be caused by bone spurs that develop on the top of the shoulder bone, creating friction between the bone and tendon when lifting your arm. The tendons of these muscles can also become inflamed or torn due to overuse or injury, causing pain and weakness in the shoulder. Proper treatment and rehabilitation are necessary to recover from a rotator cuff tear.

Shoulder impingement: Rotator cuff tears are often caused by shoulder impingement, which occurs when tendons become trapped between bones in the shoulder. This can lead to friction and eventually a partial or complete tear in the rotator cuff. Symptoms of a tear include pain at rest and during movement, weakness, and a crackling sensation when moving the shoulder. Treatment options may include surgical intervention, particularly for tears that occur suddenly from a fall or other injury.

Overhead work: Rotator cuff tears are a common injury that can occur due to repetitive overhead work or sports activities. Painters, carpenters, and other professionals who perform overhead work regularly have a higher likelihood of developing rotator cuff tears. However, younger people may also experience overuse tears as a result of athletic activities. It is important to take precautions such as taking breaks and stretching properly before engaging in overhead work or sports to prevent these injuries from occurring.

General health plays a significant role in the treatment of rotator cuff tears. Treatment options depend on the severity of the condition, age, and overall health of the patient. Non-surgical treatments may include rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), strengthening and stretching exercises, and ultrasound therapy. In severe cases, surgery may be required. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of action for treating a rotator cuff injury based on individual factors such as age and activity level.

Ibuprofen: Rotator cuff tears can be a painful and debilitating injury. Over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen or naproxen can help manage the pain and reduce inflammation. Along with rest, physical therapy, and cortisone injections, these medications are often recommended by doctors to help relieve the symptoms of rotator cuff tears. However, it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions and not rely solely on medication for treatment.

Rotator cuff tear treatment typically involves a combination of conservative measures and, in some cases, surgical intervention. Conservative treatment options may include rest, physical therapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and corticosteroid injections to reduce pain and inflammation. Physical therapy exercises are often prescribed to strengthen the muscles around the shoulder joint and improve range of motion. If conservative measures do not provide relief or if the tear is severe, surgery may be recommended. Surgical options include arthroscopic repair, in which small incisions are made to repair the torn tendon using specialized instruments, or open repair, which involves a larger incision. The choice of treatment depends on several factors such as the severity of the tear, the patient’s age and overall health, and their activity level. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate course of action for each individual case of rotator cuff tear.

Rotator cuff tears can be caused by acute injuries, such as falling on an outstretched arm, or repetitive motions, such as overhead activities. Age-related degeneration and wear and tear over time can also contribute to the development of rotator cuff tears.
