What is a rotator cuff injury?
The rotator cuff is a capsule with fused tendons that support your arm at the shoulder joint. It is one of the most common, yet misunderstood areas we can injure. The most common causes of rotator cuff injuries are motions that are repeated over and over again.
- These injuries are commonly called repetitive stress injuries.
- Rotator cuff tears can also be the result of a single incident.
Workers in various industries are at risk of rotator cuff tears. Mechanics, clothing and retail workers, service industry workers, factory workers, and more are all at risk.
Those who suffer from rotator cuff injuries often describe the following symptoms:
- A dull ache deep in the shoulder
- Disturbed sleep
- Difficulty performing routine tasks associated with lifting the arm
- Arm weakness
How are rotator cuff injuries treated?
Treatment of rotator cuff injuries can take many forms, including:
- Physical therapy
- Cortisone shots
- Surgery and rehabilitation
- Joint replacement
If you suspect you have a shoulder injury due to a workplace incident or ongoing working conditions, seek medical attention immediately. These injuries need to be diagnosed by a doctor using X-rays, an MRI, or an ultrasound.
You should speak with a Riverside torn rotator cuff injury lawyer about your options. These injuries are often difficult to pinpoint on the workplace, and you could be denied the coverage you deserve.
