Rotator Cuff Tears

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles around the scapula, or “shoulder blade,” that help to keep the shoulder stabilized with movements. The muscles that comprise the rotator cuff are the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor. Rotator cuff tears are common and usually caused by one of the following: overuse, such as repeatedly working with the arms above the head, an injury like a fall, or the aging process resulting in degeneration of the tendons or muscles. Physical therapy can help to improve the shoulder mobility, increase strength, and restore your function with a program that is safe and guided to prevent worsening of the tear.
