Rotator Cuff Injury

A rotator cuff injury is usually a strain or tear of the rotator cuff - the muscles, tendons and joint capsule that stabilises your shoulder. Injury often involves a tear to the rotator cuff tendons (the thick bands of tissue that connect the muscles to the bones).

Most common in sports

When the rotator cuff tears, shoulder movement becomes painful and your arm may become weak. You may feel pain radiate down the side of your arm or in the front of your shoulder. The pain may be most noticeable when you lift your arm overhead.

Treatment

Conservative treatments — such as rest, ice and physical therapy that's all needed to recover from a rotator cuff injury.

Surgery only If your injury is severe and involves a complete tear of the muscle or tendon, you might need surgery.

Recovery Time

Recovery can take 4 to 6 months, depending on the size of the tear and other factors. You may have to wear a sling for 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. Pain is usually managed with medicines. Physical therapy can help you regain the motion and strength of your shoulder.
