Rotator Cuff and Labral Injury

About Rotator Cuff and Labral Injury

A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that border the shoulder joint, keeping the head of your upper arm bone solid within the empty socket of the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury can cause dry pain in the shoulder, which often aggravates when you try to sleep on the affected side.

The rotator cuff tendons are just outside the shoulder joint and its capsule. The muscles of the rotator cuff help secure the shoulder and enable you to lift your arm and participate in sports but reaching overhead activity causes pain and injury.

Sometimes, rotator cuff tears may occur as a result of a single injury. In those circumstances, medical care should be provided as soon as possible. Extensive rotator cuff tears may require surgical repair, transfer of alternative tendons or joint replacement.
