How does a Rotator Cuff Injury Occur

Rotator cuff injuries occur when the tendons in your shoulder become inflamed causing pain when you move the arm up or out. The rotator cuff is made up of tendons that attach muscles from the ribs and shoulder blade to the upper arm. The muscles and tendons facilitate the rotation of your arm, hence the name rotator cuff. When the tendons in the cuff are forced past their natural range the friction can cause tendinitis, subacromial bursitis, or a rotator cuff tear.

Rotator cuff injuries are extremely common in people who repetitively rotate their arms to perform their work. Repeated use can wear the tendons of the rotator cuff because they are constantly rubbing against each other. Injury can also occur from a sudden movement outside of your usual comfort zone. In this case, tons of friction is applied at once, which can severely injury or tear the tendons. Regardless of the way it happened, be assured that a visit to Mobility Spine and Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL, can help you with any rotator cuff injury you might have.
