What is the “Rotator Cuff”? (Shoulder Pain)

If you have shoulder pain, you’ve probably heard the term “rotator cuff” before, but you might not know what the rotator cuff actually is.

In this video, I’ll explain how the rotator cuff is made up of four small muscles, and I’ll tell you how these muscles function to stabilize your shoulder joint when you move your arm.

These muscles include the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis.

Towards the end of the video, I’ll also explain why rotator cuff pain is so common (things like rotator cuff tendonitis and tendinosis, as well as impingement).

This should help you understand why shoulder pain is so common, and why the rotator cuff muscles are often involved.
