Rotator Cuff Tears

Sports Medicine

Rotator cuff tears occur when the muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint (forming the rotator cuff) rip or tear. The rotator cuff stabilizes the shoulder and aids in its namesake function to afford rotation and mobility of the arm.

Rotator cuff injuries are common. Tears in this group of muscles can result from sports, repetitive motions or wear-and-tear, and stress incidents like heavy-lifting.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Pain can be a symptom, but not always
  • Limited mobility
  • Popping sound with motion
