What Causes A Rotator Cuff Injury?

Rotator Cuff injuries, strains, sprains, full or partial tears – however you wish to describe this kind of injury – the key thing it remembers is stability, stability, stability. Rotator cuff injuries or tears can be caused by a traumatic event – like a sports injuries or can be caused by a gradual repetitive strain from low levels of stress over time that slowly reduces the tolerance or resilience of the muscle and leads to a tear or sprain.

What Is The Rotator Cuff?

The rotator cuff is very important to a group of four muscles that stabilize and assist in the movement of the shoulder. This is why it is so important to design a treatment program that is stability and strength-focused to adequately rebuild the muscle fibers.

  • Teres Minor.
  • Supraspinatus.
  • Infraspinatus.
  • Subscapularis.

Factors That Increase The Risk Of A Tear In The Rotator Cuff 

Any and every condition from back pain to migraines to arthritis – is multi-factorial, which means there are a number of factors that influence your development (i.e the cause), the impact the condition has on you (i.e the burden of disease), your journey with the condition (i.e recovery).

Rotator Cuff Injuries

So, the question is what are the factors that reduce the likelihood of developing an injury, reduce the burden or impact of the condition and promote a speedy recovery? If you following factors are given attention and if needed modification, you can prevent, reduce the burden and recover from or manage any physical or even psychology issue:

  • Sleep.
  • Diet.
  • Regular moderate strength and endurance training.
  • Regular mobility training.
  • Posture/body awareness.
