The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles and the corresponding tendons that are responsible for motion and secondary stability of the shoulder.  A rotator cuff injury includes any type of irritation or damage to your rotator cuff muscles or tendons. There are numerous causes of rotator cuff injury; these may include falling, lifting overhead, repetitive arm activities, and even throwing activities.

The rotator cuff is comprised of muscles and tendons in your shoulder. These muscles and tendons connect the upper arm bone with the shoulder blade. The combination provides in the greatest range of motion of any joint in your body.


  • Pain and tenderness in your shoulder
  • Shoulder weakness
  • Loss of shoulder range of motion
  • Relief when the shoulder is inactive

Treatments for rotator cuff tears can include home exercises, physical therapy, and potentially surgical depending on the severity of symptoms.
