Shoulder pain - from mild to horrible, with decreased strength, decreased range of motion, etc. See your doctor for Xrays, then get referred to an orthopedic surgeon if symptoms persist.

There are many symptoms of a torn rotator cuff. These include pain over the shoulder and upper arm, decreased strength and inability to perform normal tasks (such as combing of hair).

The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and their related muscles that helps keep the upper arm bone securely placed, or seated, into the socket of the shoulder blade. Rotator cuff disorders are usually caused by a combination of factors, such as normal wear and tear. Age-related degeneration slowly damages the rotator cuff, causing one or more tendons to rub against the bones (impingement). Partial or complete tears to the rotator cuff tendon are more likely to occur when the rotator cuff is already scarred, weakened, or damaged. A complete rotator cuff tear in a person with an otherwise healthy shoulder is most often caused by an extremely forceful injury. PAINPAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes. A fractured arm or torn rotator cuff is not a disease but both are painful. Disease is not the only cause of pain. There are many conditions and situations that can cause pain.

If you have injured your shoulder or have chronic shoulder and arm pain, it is best to see an orthopaedic surgeon. He or she can then make a diagnosis and begin treatment.

It is the bone at the top of your shoulder. Where the arm meets the torso. To be a little more specific, the rotator cuff is not a bone, but actually four muscles (the Teres Minor, the Infraspinatus, the Supraspinatus and the Subscapularis if you want to know specifics) that get their name because they help rotate the arm and provide stability for the shoulder. !

The rotator cuff injury by itself should not , however, many of the injuries that can affect the rotator cuff can also impact the nerves.

The rotator cuff is a collection of muscles that act on the glenohumeral joint (shoulder joint) which are used to rotate the arm. There are four muscles in the rotator cuff called Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Subscapularis.

Tendinitis or the rotator cuff (a group of muscles). It could be other things, but these seem to be the main problems.

The function of the rotator cuff muscles are simply to rotate the arm medially(inwards), to assist the deltoid in abduction(lifting of the arm), and for adduction(lowering) of the arm. The rotator cuff are also known as the SITTS muscles. Supraspinatus, located closest to the front of your shoulder, Infraspinatus, right behind it, Teres Minor right behind and slightly lower, and finally Teres Major, the large muscles that connects just beneath you shoulder and to you humerus.

A group of 4 muscles form the rotator cuff and help to stabilise the shoulder joint. It means that there is a tear in the rotator cuff muscles about 1.5 x 1.5 cm g. Rotator cuff injuries causes difficulty in lifting your arm and may require surgical intervention

Yes, an octopus can regrow an arm that gets torn off.

Well I'm not sure if mine is torn or not, but it is always uncomfortable, like there's always a little bit of pain, when someone pushes it- it hurts the worse, and when I write for extensive periods or shoot a basketball, pass a basketball. Pretty much just extending my arm either up or to the side all the way kills. Most of my pain in the upper back part of my shoulder and sometime goes into the rest of my arm (biceps). I also hear that numbness and tingling feeling are common, but I don't have that.

The muscle that lifts the arm away from the side of the body, or abducts the arm, is supraspinatous muscle, which is one of the four scapulohumeral muscles making up the rotator cuff.
