Rotator Cuff Muscles (SITS)



Teres Minor


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.

Possible rotator cuff? as in your shoulder.

known by several names, including pitcher's shoulder, swimmer's shoulder, and tennis shoulder.

The process can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks to heal depending on age, health, and any previous injury to the shoulder.

That is the correct spelling of "dislocated" (out of position, as in an injury).

The best prevention is to avoid repetitive overhead arm movements and to develop shoulder strength.

Major nerves and blood vessels can be blocked/pinched and cause injury or loss of limb if not treated.

Rotator cuff surgery is necessary when chronic shoulder pain associated with rotator cuff injury does not respond to conservative therapy such as rest, heat/ice application, or the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

The two primary symptoms are pain and weakness in the shoulder or arm, especially with arm movement or at night.

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

External rotation of the shoulder is a common exercise to work the rotator cuff muscle. If your muscles have been injured it is advisable to visit a medical professional, as long term damage can occur if not treated correctly.

No, dislocated limbs need to be "relocated" in their proper socket before healing can take place. This type of injury is extremely painful. Let dislocated, it can cause damage to the tendons and ligaments which hold the joint in normal position. Get the puppy to a Vet immediately! If you dislocated your shoulder, what would you do about that? I'm sure you'd go to a doctor. Why would you even hesitate about doing the same for your puppy? Anyway, having had a dislocated shoulder, I can tell you that it's painful. Give the pup some relief and get him to the vet. Please. Go to your vet!!

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.

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.

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

CPR training, per se, doesn't contribute to any injuries. If for example you have a dislocated or broken shoulder and tried to do CPR training, it may make the injury worse.

Subluxation is the medical term for dislocation. Pseudo- means fake. And humerus is the bone of the upper arm. So a pseudosubluxation of the humerus would be an injury to the shoulder where it appears to be dislocated but really isn't.

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.

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.

Generally Workers Comp or DI coverage pays until the injury no longer prevents you from returning to work.

Brett Favre has a tear in his biceps tendon. When that was repaired before signing with the Minnesota Vikings they also found out he also has a minor tear in his rotator cuff in his shoulder.

When you dislocate a shoulder, the rounded head (or condyle) of the Humerus (upper arm bone) pops out of the socket -- it's a ball-and-socket type of joint. With a dislocation, you should be able to feel (palpate) the condyle in your armpit or elsewhere nearby. Also, if your shoulder is dislocated you will be in extreme pain and mostly unable to move the arm. That said, even if you've not dislocated the shoulder, you've clearly done a lot of damage. Even with a soft tissue injury at that location, I would certainly get it x-rayed, just to be sure. And I'd also talk about pain control, and possibly some rehab.
