ROTATOR CUFF TENDONITIS
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles that attach via tendons to the head of the upper arm bone (the humerus). The function of the cuff is to center the head of the humerus in the socket and move the arm. These tendons are in a constant state of rebuilding and breaking down. When the rate of breaking down exceeds the ability of the tendon to rebuild, micro tears occur causing pain and inflammation. This inflammation is known as tendonitis. In the extreme case, this inflammation can result in the failure of the tendon known as a rotator cuff tear.
- Over use. Engaging in repetitive overhead activities such as swimming, throwing, playing tennis,volley ball,basket ball,throw ball,cricket ,etc
- Age, As we age, the blood supply that allows the tendon to build up and break down decreases. Over the age of 40, this makes the tendon more prone to inflammation (i.e., tendonitis and tear)
- People who develop shoulder arthritis can form bone spurs that can impinge and wear the tendon leading it to tear
