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.
