What Is A Rotator Cuff Tear?
A rotator cuff tear is a common injury, especially in sports like baseball or tennis, or in jobs like painting or cleaning windows. It usually happens over time from normal wear and tears, or if you repeat the same arm motion over and over. But it also can happen suddenly if you fall on your arm or lift something heavy.
Rotator Cuff Tear Injury Symptoms
Torn rotator cuff symptoms will consist of sudden pain in the shoulder sometimes accompanied by a tearing feeling. Symptoms may radiate down into the arm. The patient will often be unable to sleep on the injured shoulder and there may be signs of shoulder impingement where the tendon pinches between the ball and socket of the shoulder joint when moving the arm out over head height.
