Rotator cuff injuries are very common. The two most frequent injuries are:

Rotator cuff tendinitis (inflammation) often results from repetitive overhead motions such as throwing a ball, swimming or swinging a racket.

An acute injury — such as falling or lifting something heavy — can tear rotator cuff tendons. But in most cases, rotator cuff tears also occur gradually over time.

As we age, tendons thin out and wear down. Blood supply to the shoulder tendons also slows down. As a result, tiny tears do not repair themselves as effectively. Playing a sport or doing a job that requires repetitive overhead motions can also lead to tears over time.

People of all ages can suffer from rotator cuff injuries like tendonitis or tears. Learn how MD West ONE can help...
