What Is A Rotator Cuff And How Does It Get Injured?
You may have heard of a rotator cuff before but you probably never needed to know what it was. The rotator cuff is an area that surrounds your shoulder joint. It is comprised of a series of muscles and tendons that keep the head of your upper arm in place within the shoulder socket. This is an important area of the body, and any injury can impair your ability to work and lead a normal life.
What Causes A Rotator Cuff To Tear?
There are various ways that a rotator cuff can become injured. In some instances, a single traumatic incident that affects your shoulder. This can happen due to an overextension of the shoulder joints. In these cases, an injury will likely be immediately apparent and you should seek medical attention.
