What are rotator cuff injuries?
Rotator cuff injuries are one of the most common types of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff is the name given to a group of four muscles and their tendons, which form a supportive cuff around the shoulder joint. Rotator cuff injuries refer to irritation, inflammation, or a tear to any of these muscles or tendons.
