Your rotator cuff consists of 4 muscles – supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis – and the tendons that attach them to bones in your shoulder.
Rotator cuff problems and its resulting symptoms include tears in the muscle or tendons and tendinitis. These complications may occur suddenly due to an injury or they may occur progressively over time. Damage or injury to a single or multiple area of the rotator cuff can cause pain, decreased mobility, and weakness, as well as a clicking sensation in the shoulder.Â
The rotator cuff, consisting of the four muscles, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis, connects the upper arm bone to the shoulder blade, which allows the arms to move. Complications to the rotator cuff may occurs due to injury or a gradual conditions, resulting in symptoms of pain and weakness.
