The shoulder joint is a relatively unstable joint that is moved and controlled by a small group of four muscles, known as the rotator cuff. These muscles (the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor) help move, control and stabilise the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury can include any type of irritation or overuse to these muscles or their tendons, and is one of the most common shoulder injuries we see. Injuries involving the rotator cuff include impingement, tendinopathy, strains and tears, all of which can be acute or chronic in nature. Activities that cause rotator cuff injury include lifting, falling, overhead activities, repetitive activities, poor posture and degenerative changes to name but a few.
