The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles, whose combined mission is to keep the shoulder in its socket. A rotator "cup" doesn't exist in the world of anatomy. Perhaps you heard it from someone who mispronounced after not hearing clearly.

How do you treat pain in the shoulder's rotating cup?

Rotator cuff pain is treated in many different ways, depending on the severity of the injury. The rotator cuff is the group of muscles that attach to the shoulder blade and the humerus head, and when they contract they cause shoulder rotation and abduction. Most rotator cuff injuries are actually injuries to the tendon part of the muscle group, just proximal to the insertion point on the humerus. This part of the tendon often gets torn or irritated as it passes under the acromion process of the shoulder blade. Treatment should be directed at reducing tightness and tenderness in the bellies of the rotator cuff muscles, reducing the inflammation in the tendon, and then increasing strength in the muscles. If the tear in the tendon is substantial, the conservative treatment above may not work, and surgical re-attachment or repair might be indicated. Keith E. Biggs, DC
