Torn Rotator Cuff

Torn Rotator CuffAre you experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  • Weakness, stiffness, or limited movement of the arm or shoulder
  • A popping sound heard at the time of the injury
  • Pain, especially when the arm is moved
  • Swelling or bump at the site of the injury

This condition involves damage to one or more of the four tendons that cover the shoulder joint and connect the shoulder bone to the collarbone. A torn rotator cuff is usually caused by injury in which the tendon is overstretched or resulting from a direct blow. This condition can also occur as a result of repeated minor injury or overuse that weaken the tendon.
