Rotator Cuff Injury
|Disease:||Rotator Cuff Injury|
|Category:||Bones, joints, muscles diseases|
The muscles and tendons in the shoulder make up the rotator cuff. These muscles and tendons connect the upper arm bone with the shoulder blade. They also help hold the ball of the upper arm bone firmly in the shoulder socket. The greatest range of motion of any joint in the body is the result of this combination.
Any type of irritation or damage to the rotator cuff muscles or tendons is included in a rotator cuff injury. Falling; lifting; and repetitive arm activities especially those done overhead, such as throwing a baseball or placing items on overhead shelves may be included in the causes of a rotator cuff injury.
With self-care measures or exercise therapy, most rotator cuff injuries heal on their own.
