If you are going through an ongoing shoulder pain, most likely you are experiencing from Rotator Cuff injury. The rotator cuff comprises of the muscles and tendons in your shoulder, that attach to the bones of your shoulder joint. Inflammation, injury, or bone changes around the rotator cuff in your shoulder can cause immense pain, discomfort and restricts your day to day moment.
Kinds of Rotator Cuff Injuries
Rotator cuff injuries can be severe (traumatic) or chronic (continuing) injuries that occur over time. These injuries include:
Regular Wear and Tear: A regular wear and tear on your shoulder can lead to a rotator cuff injury. With age also this problem becomes common.
Tendinitis: The most common reason of shoulder pain is inflammation or soreness of the tendon in your rotator cuff from over use of the shoulder. It is a common injury in athletes who are into sports like tennis, volley ball, weight lifting and swimming.
Bursitis: It is a soreness of the bursa, small slippery fluid filled sacs in the middle of your shoulder joint and rotator cuff tendons. Bursa prevents the joint and helps it function smoothly.
Tendon Strain: The tendon of the rotator cuff is injured either partially or completely. It can cause due to a sudden injury on outcome of a repetitive motion. If a tendinitis is not treated on time this can lead to a tendon strain.
Shoulder Impingement: It happens when there is an impingement of tendons in the shoulder. In other words, when the rotator cuff rubs on the bones in the shoulder it causes consistent pain, swelling and injury.
