Understanding Rotator Cuff

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, keeping the head of your upper arm bone firmly within the shallow socket of the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury can cause a dull ache in the shoulder, which often worsens when you try to sleep on the involved side.

Rotator cuff injuries are very common, especially in people over 40, athletes, and people whose work involves repeatedly lifting their arms overhead. Conservative treatments are usually successful.
