A Rotator cuff injury is a common cause of pain and disability among adults, as this weakens one’s shoulder. This means that many daily rotator_cuffactivities, like combing your hair or getting dressed, may become painful and difficult to do.

A Rotator cuff injury comprises any type of irritation/damage to one’s rotator cuff muscles or tendons. Causes of a rotator cuff injury may include falling, lifting and repetitive arm activities.

Types of Rotator cuff injury

There are a number of different problems that can affect the rotator cuff. Here the most common problems include:

  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff impingement syndrome
  • Rotator cuff tear

Cause of Rotator cuff injury

Rotator cuff injury appears common in both young athletes and middle-aged people. Young athletes who use their arms overhead for swimming, baseball, and tennis are particularly vulnerable. And those who do repetitive lifting or overhead activities using the arm, such as paper hanging, construction, or painting are also susceptible.

Symptoms

  • Minor pain that is present both with activity and at rest
  • Pain radiating from the front of the shoulder to the side of the arm
  • Sudden pain with lifting and reaching movements
  • Athletes in overhead sports may have pain when throwing or serving a tennis ball

Treatment Options for a Rotator Cuff Tear

Anti-inflammatories: Your doctor may also suggest that you take regular anti-inflammatories. These are painkillers but they also reduce inflammation and are commonly prescribed. They include ibuprofen, diclofenac, and naproxen. Side-effects sometimes occur with anti-inflammatories. So always read the leaflet that comes with the medicine packet for a full list of cautions.

  • Ice packs:

    These can also help to reduce pain. A bag of frozen peas is an easy ice pack to use in the home.

  • Physiotherapy:

    This may be helpful for people with minor rotator cuff tears.

  • Steroid injections:

    Sometimes steroid injections may be suggested by your doctor to your shoulder joint as a treatment for minor tears. So consider that these injections may assist to lessen any inflammation.

  • Surgery:

    Usually Surgery involves decompression of the space underneath the acromion, and may also include repair of the rotator cuff tendon.

After the Surgery

Your doctor is likely to offer a rehabilitation program based on your needs at surgery. As this will include exercises to regain range to motion of the shoulder and strength of the arm, it usually takes 2 to 4 months to attain complete relief of pain.
