Rotator Cuff Injuries
A torn rotator cuff causes pain and weakness in the affected shoulder. In some cases, a rotator tear may be only partial. You may experience pain in your shoulder, but you still have a normal range of motion. Typically, the larger the tear, the more pain and weakness you experience.
In a worst case scenario, the rotator cuff tendons rupture completely. These types of complete tears leave victims almost completely unable to raise their arms away from their sides. A complete tear is usually very obvious. If your doctor can move the arm in a normal range of motion, but you can't move the arm yourself, you most likely have a torn rotator cuff.
It is crucial that work with our trained staff to improve the strength and coordination in the rotator cuff and shoulder blade muscles after this type of injury. Your therapist can also evaluate your workstation or the way you use your body when you do your activities and suggest changes to avoid further problems.
