Rotator What?

Shoulder pain can be a scary thing. The shoulder is one of the most important joints in the body, and to have its mobility severely hampered is to have one's daily activities drastically affected. However, by acting quickly and following your doctor's advice, it is very possible that a rotator cuff tear could be healed with little change in lifestyle at all.

But when you go to the doctor for shoulder pain, and the doctor gives you the common diagnosis of a rotator cuff tear, oftentimes patients have no idea what the rotator cuff is, or even what it is doing in the shoulder!

Check out this great article on eOrthopod to try and answer those questions - I don't know that I could have put it better myself!
