What is a Rotator Cuff Injury?

A rotator cuff injury is when a tendon in your shoulder has tiny tears in it or is inflamed and hurts. It’s usually caused by overuse or general wear and tear. This can be a sub-type of tendinosis or tendonitis, this type of shoulder pain is more common in people over age 30. If it’s not treated, it can lead to stiffness or weakness in your shoulder and other long-term problems.
