Do you feel a dull pain in your shoulder? Does the pain restrict your normal arm and shoulder movements? If this is the case, you may have suffered a rotator cuff tear.
Your shoulder mainly consists of three bones – the upper arm bone, the shoulder blade, and the collarbone. The arm is attached to the shoulder in a ball-and-socket joint, and it is kept in place with the help of the rotator cuff – a small group of muscles that cover the upper arm bone.
