What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Problems?

Share

 

Your rotator cuff consists of 4 muscles — supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis — and the tendons that attach them to bones in your shoulder.

Rotator cuff problems and its resulting symptoms include tears in the muscle or tendons and tendinitis. These complications may occur suddenly due to an injury or they may occur progressively over time. Damage or injury to a single or multiple area of the rotator cuff can cause pain, decreased mobility, and weakness, as well as a clicking sensation in the shoulder.
