Injury to the Rotator Cuff ?

Direct forced impact, stress & strain typically cause injury to the shoulder joint, especially with reasonable frequency in sport.

The Rotator Cuff mechanism seems to be particularly prone to strains of one or more of the muscles forming the cuff.

These are the short rotator muscles which, at their insertions blend with the shoulder capsule, although in some cases arthritic change may also contribute to many of the symptoms experienced, the degree of injury can range from mild (first degree) rupture (Second Degree) or complete rupture (Third Degree).

Similar to the symptoms often experienced with adhesive capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder) pain, reduced mobility & muscle atrophy (muscle wasting) is typically experienced, which is why one should seek professional advice as soon as possible as this condition rarely improves without therapeutic intervention.
