The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, keeping the head of your upper arm bone firmly within the shallow socket of the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury can cause a dull ache in the shoulder, which often worsens when you try to sleep on the involved side. Rotator cuff injuries occur most often in people who repeatedly perform overhead motions in their jobs or sports.
Examples include painters, carpenters, and people who play baseball or tennis.
Sometimes, rotator cuff tears may occur as a result of a single injury. In those circumstances, medical care should be provided as soon as possible. Extensive rotator cuff tears may require surgical repair, transfer of alternative tendons or joint replacement.
The pain associated with a rotator cuff injury may be described as a dull ache deep in the shoulder, disturb sleep, particularly if you lie on the affected shoulder, make it difficult to comb your hair or reach behind your back & be accompanied by arm weakness. Shoulder pain that is short-lived may be evaluated by your family doctor.
We’ll give you the proper medical approach via treatments & exercises to get you back to health.
