Rotator Cuff

1. Rotator Cuff Tensonitis
Rotator Cuff tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendon of the shoulder that
results from acute injury or overuse.   Rotator Cuff tendonitis that is in the
inflammation stage can be healed in 8 to 17 days with 3 to 6
treatment.  The FASTT Patch is able to heal Rotator Cuff tendonitis by
increasing local blood flow and lymphatic circulation.

a) Inflammation Stage Rotator Cuff Tendonitis:
For inflammation stage tendonitis that is within 3 months of onset and there
is no scar tissue and calcification formation, a treatment  of 3 FASTT
Patches should achieve complete healing.

If the condition is over 3 months of onset, or the patient is older, and/or the
injury is caused by overuse, a 6 FASTT Patch treatment is required for
complete healing.  Patients may not feel an immediate pain reduction after
the application of one or two patches and a minimum 3 FASTT Patch
treatment is required in order to see improvement.  Patients may also
initially feel the pain getting worse as part of the healing process followed by
a reduction in pain.

b) Degeneration Stage Rotator Cuff Tendonitis (Tendinosis):
Degeneration stage tendonitis or tendinosis is characterized by the
calcification and/or scar tissue requires treatment with 6 FASTT Patches
followed by additional 6 or more WHITEE Patches treatment.  Treatment
results will vary depending on the patient's age and the age of the injury.  
Patients may achieve complete healing or just partial improvement.

c) Rotator Cuff Tendonitis Complicated by Joint Problems:
For tendonitis that is complicated by cartilage injury or early-stage
osteoarthritis, patients may not feel any improvement with 3 to 6 FASTT
Patches. We recommend a treatment of 3-6
WHITEE Patches to heal the
cartilage damage.

2. Acute Rotator Cuff Injuries
For partial muscle and tendon tears in the acute Rotator Cuff injuries, we
recommend a treatment with 5 FASTT Patches to achieve a complete
