If you are like most residents of the Garden State, you reach your arms above your head dozens of times per day without giving the motion much thought or any thought at all. Still, if you injure your rotator cuff, the group of tendons and muscles in your shoulder, this simple movement may become excruciatingly painful.
Rotator cuff injuries are common. In fact, according to the Cleveland Clinic, roughly two million Americans injure their rotator cuffs every single year. Regrettably, an unexpected slip-and-fall accident may cause you to tear or otherwise injure your rotator cuff.
