What is a rotator cuff?
The rotator cuff helps you raise and lower your arm and stabilizes the ball of the shoulder within the joint. It is a tendon that connects multiple muscles to the head of the humerus (the arm bone).
Rotator cuff injuries can occur from repeated shoulder motions. They can also occur from traumatic injuries.
Rotator Cuff Treatments
There are several treatments for rotator cuff tears, including physical therapy, injections, and superior capsular reconstruction.
