The rotator cuff consists of a group of muscles and tendons around the shoulder joint that keeps the head of the upper arm bone (humerus) in the socket (glenoid) of the shoulder.
A dull ache in the shoulder is often the first sign of a rotator cuff injury.
This type of injury presents in individuals who have jobs or play sports that involve performing repetitive overhead motions. This is not always the case but is typically what we see her at HALO Clinic.
Other symptoms of a rotator cuff injury are disturbed sleeping if you lay on the affected shoulder. Difficulty reaching behind the back or lifting your arm along with arm weakness, can also present themselves.
The risk of this injury increase with age, along with specific sports or jobs and family history.
