If you're asking what's the name of muscles surrounding your rotator cuff, that's the deltoids.

what muscles make up the rotator cuff


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 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.


There are four muscles in rotator cuff. Supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, teres minor. Please, find out the odd man out.


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.


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


supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and subscapularis muscles.


Four muscles in a persons body make up a rotator cuff: supraspinatus muscle, infraspinatus muscle, teres minor muscle and the subscapularis muscle.There are four muscles that make up a rotator cup.name the muscles please


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 consist of tendons of four different muscles. The exact medical definition of a rotator cuff injury means some kind of damage to the tendons, like a tear or impingement.


There are four tendons in the rotator cuff, and these tendons are attached individually to the following muscles: teres minor, subscapularis, infraspinatus, and the supraspinatus.


The supraspinatus, subscapularis, teres minor, and the infraspinatus


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 4 muscles are subscapularis. supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and teres minor


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.


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.


Rotator Cuff Muscles (SITS) Supraspinatus Infraspinatus Teres Minor Subscapularis Rotator cuff muscles all attach to the head of the humerus and act to seat the head of the humerus firmly in the glenoid fossa to prevent shoulder dislocation. A dislocated shoulder means some/all of these muscles have been torn.


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.




When properly done, the pectoral muscles, abdominal muscles and rotator cuff muscles (of the shoulders) receive a significant workout.


It consists of a group of muscles and tendons that hold the pelvic girdle in place and make it functional, similar to the rotator cuff in the shoulder.


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.


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


The rotator cuff allows for rotation of the shoulder.
