Rotator cuff tears are tears of one or more of the four tendons of the rotator cuffmuscles. A rotator cuff injury can include any type of irritation or damage to therotator cuff muscles or tendons.


The rotator cuff is comprised of four muscles. These individual muscles combine at the shoulder to form a thick "cuff" over this joint. The rotator cuff has the important job of stabilizing the shoulder as well as elevating and rotating the arm. Each muscle originates on the shoulder blade, or scapula, and inserts on the arm bone, or humerus.


The rotator cuff allows for rotation of the shoulder.

The mild rotator cuff tonden refers to the muscles that connect the shoulder blade to the upper arm.


Well, your 'rotator cuff' is comprised of four muscles: Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor, and Subscapularis. These four muscles encompass, and therefore stabolize, the glenohumeral joint (the joint where your arm[humerus bone] joins your shoulder blade[scapula bone]). These muscles help move your arm at the shoulder in all angles. So, if you have a 'rotator cuff tear' it is an injury or strain to one or more of these muscles.


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


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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are several exercises featured on the Men's Fitness website that are designed to reduce sports injuries to the rotator cuff. Due to the smaller size of the rotator cuff muscles and the amount of work demanded of them, they can be torn due to trauma or inflamed from overuse.


Rotator cuff is composed of four muscles. These muscles keep the head of the humerus in proximity to the scapula bone. Any force, that tries to pull away the head of the humerus will cause injury to the rotator cuff muscles. Any body can get such injury.
