How to Know If a Rotator Cuff Is Torn
A torn rotator cuff is a common shoulder injury. The shoulder is a very complex joint as it can move in many directions. If you participate in a sport that requires repetitive arm motions or your everyday life requires you to use your shoulders, you can injure the rotator cuff.
Recovery from a torn rotator cuff can be slow. Learning to recognize the signs and symptoms can help you to get treatment for this condition before you need surgery.
