Rotator Cuff Injury & the Benefits of Physiotherapy
The rotator cuff is a set of four distinct muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder, allowing it to move. The rotator cuff helps to keep the head of one’s upper arm into the shoulder socket. An injury to the rotator cuff may be due to wear and tear from daily use if what you do requires you to move your arm a certain way—for instance, a carpenter or a baseball player. Although an injury to the rotator cuff may require surgery in some cases, treatment is usually by physiotherapy.
