A rotator cuff injury can greatly impact your day-to-day lifestyle, creating debilitating pain that can make even a basic activity such as sleeping a chore. A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder joint and hold the head of the arm bone in the socket, and injuries can occur to individuals who perform repeated overhead motions, either during a job or while playing a sport. Different types of rotator cuff injuries can include inflammation that causes nerve impingement, tendonitis, or a muscle tear, which could require surgery.
