ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES

A rotator cuff injury is usually a strain or a tear in the shoulder joint. The pain initially begins as a dull ache that may progress in severity over time. There are different causes and types of injuries. These injuries occur most often in people who repeatedly perform overhead motions in their jobs or sports, such as painters, carpenters, baseball, or tennis players. Rotator cuff injuries increase with age.
