A rotator cuff injury is  a strain/ tear of the rotator cuff muscles, tendons or joint capsule that stabilises your shoulder. Injury often involves a tear to the rotator cuff tendons  commonly the site of a tear is in the supraspinatus tendon. Severe injuries can cause several of the tendons and muscles to tear.

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and their tendons that hold the shoulder joint in place by attaching the shoulder blade to the humerus (upper arm bone) and covering the head of the humerus. The rotator cuff stabilises the shoulder joint and helps move the shoulder. The 4 muscles (and their tendons) that make up the rotator cuff are:

  • the supraspinatus;
  • the infraspinatus;
  • the subscapularis; and
  • the teres minor

Sign & symptoms of Rotator Cuff Injuries?

  1. pain and tenderness in the shoulder
  2. weakness of the shoulder
  3. Limited of movement of the shoulder
  4. A complete or full thickness tear often occurs at or near the attachment of the tendon to the arm bone, or humerus and may cause significant disability and usually requires a surgery intervention.
