Rotator cuff tendinopathy can cause significant disability and pain. It might be the inability to sleep on that shoulder because it wakes you up at night. It might be the inability to play tennis, golf, pickle ball or go boating.
Recent Patient Asks me, Dr, Timothy Harcourt, "My Whole Arm Hurts and Is Numb Since the Car Accident, Is That Normal?"

Pain into the arm combined with numbness especially if contiguous from the neck into the fingers strongly suggests cervical nerve irritation and/or compression. What can cause the nerves coming out of your neck to get irritated and/or compressed? The accident can over-stretch and damage the nerve/s simply from the whipping action from the head going back and forth at an extremely high rate of speed. Nerve compression can occur with pre-existing degenerative change prior to the accident and then the nerve/s can be compressed or potentiated by the accident more than what would have happened without the pre-existing degenerative change. Additionally, trauma to the disc between the vertebra can herniate and compress the nerve. The short answer is pain and numbness into the arms or legs extended to the fingers or toes can be a very serious problem requiring immediate evaluation and attention.
A Patient Recently asked me, "When I Roll Over on My Shoulder at Night It Wakes Me Up, What Does It Mean Dr. Harcourt?

Shoulder irritation is magnified at night especially when pressure is applied to the joint and tendons over a period of time without significant movement. Specifically, rotator cuff tendons can get overstretched and irritated when sleeping on the affected shoulder. The key is to provide a natural treatment to stimulate healing so that when you sleep on that shoulder it does not get irritated and therefore no longer awakens you.

Muscles cross joints meaning that a tight muscle can impact many joints if stiff, tight, dehydrated, spastic, unequal in length, traumatized (car accident, sports injury, work injury) and others.

Direct primary contracts approved by the Florida legislature allows patients and Dr. Harcourt to make a contract for care regardless of presence or complete absence of insurance coverage. This is a great thing for residents of Florida because they can obtain a better deal for services with more flexibility and for doctors who are quite weary of ever decreasing reimbursement and increasing difficulty to get insurance carriers to pay the bill.
