Rotator Cuff Injury and Tears

A rotator cuff injury is a strain or tear in the group of tendons and muscles that hold your shoulder joint together and help move your shoulder. This type of injury is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. People who do repetitive lifting or overhead activities - painters and carpenters - are at risk, as are athletes - particularly tennis players and baseball pitchers.
