Rotator Cuff Tear

Rotator Cuff Tear

 

What is it?

There are four muscles that hold the shoulder together by keeping the upper arm bone (humerus) in the socket. The tendons of these four muscles come together and wrap around the shoulder, creating the rotator cuff. A tear maybe caused by injury or repetitive movement of the shoulder wearing it down.
