What constitutes a rotator cuff tear?
A torn rotator cuff occurs when the tendon is torn away from the shoulder bone. This separation can commonly happen as a result of lifting heavy objects and repeated stress on the shoulder. Torn rotator cuff injuries can happen suddenly or over time as a result of repeated activity.
If a rotator cuff tear goes untreated you may experience significant limitations in the function of your shoulder and arm. It is common that torn rotator cuffs will require surgery to fully repair arm function.
If a partial rotator cuff tear isn’t treated they can result in a complete and total tear.
