Rotator Cuff Injury

Rotator cuff injuries are common, especially as people age. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and tendons that stabilize your shoulder and allow you to lift and rotate your arm. Injuries can range from inflammation and small tears to complete tears. These injuries can cause pain and limit your shoulder’s movement.

Symptoms of a Rotator Cuff Injury

Common symptoms include:

  • Pain: Especially when lifting your arm or reaching overhead.
  • Weakness: In your shoulder, making it difficult to lift objects.
  • Limited Range of Motion: Difficulty moving your shoulder, especially during certain movements.
  • Cracking Sensation: A popping or cracking feeling when you move your shoulder.
