Rotator Cuff Injuries

Treatment for Rotator Cuff Injuries


The rotator cuff muscles are a group of small muscles and their tendons which help stabilize the shoulder in its joint. A rotator cuff injury can include any type of injury or damage to the rotator cuff muscles or tendons. This includes: tears, tendinopathy, bursitis and inflammation (tendinitis).

Common symptoms include: a pain or ache felt in the shoulder on moving the arm up to the side or front. The pain can sometimes occur in an “arc” or “catch” during movement.

Where pain may come on at a certain point during movement, difficulty with overhead activities or post-activity ache after overhead activity. Symptoms may also include aching pain which may be worse at night and towards the end of the day following activity. These injuries may be caused by a sporting injury, an injury from recreational activity or degenerative changes. Contributing to these injuries may be poor biomechanics of the shoulder joint and shoulder blade, poor posture, weak supporting muscles or poor technique to an activity.
