Rotator Cuff Injuries

Not just for baseball pitchers

Shoulder pain and injury can be quite debilitating and frustrating, especially when training and everyday activities are affected.

The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles (the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor) and their tendons. It’s surrounded by a bursa, which aids in the sliding of these tendons. When the rotator cuff muscles are working properly, they function to hold the humerus (upper arm bone) in the proper position in the joint, by maintaining adequate spacing between the bone and the rotator cuff. However, when one or more of the muscles is weak, an imbalance occurs and the space between the bone and the rotator cuff decreases.

Impingement, the pinching of the surrounding bursa or tendons, will likely occur in this case and lead to inflammation. When the rotator cuff is weak, repetitive use of the shoulder in sports – such as swimming, tennis and baseball – will increase the amount of inflammation and pain. Continuing to exercise in this state could lead to tendonitis.
