It is located near the under part of the shoulder blade and provides stability and range of motion to the joint whenever it moves. Rotator cuff injuries are very common sport-related injuries, especially in sports that require repetitive overhead arm motions.

Symptoms usually include pain, weakness and tenderness in the shoulder when reaching overhead, behind the back, when pulling and when lifting items. Symptoms may show up immediately or gradually, depending on the extent of the injury.
