The Root of Rotator Cuff Pain

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the joint of the shoulder, effectively securing the top of your arm bone within the socket. A single traumatic event can cause injury to the rotator cuff, but it’s more common that over time, repetitive strain causes injury. Athletes and those with regular fitness routines are at particular risk, since there are a number of sports-related motions that can cause rotator cuff pain, including:

  • Throwing a baseball, football, or basketball
  • Playing tennis
  • Swimming
