Rotator cuff tendinitis

Rotator cuff is a group of tendons connecting the four muscles of the upper shoulder to the upper arm. They run under the acromion where they are vulnerable to being pinched or damaged. This can lead to a tear, resulting in a painful, weak shoulder. Tears result from a single traumatic event or develop gradually, leading to difficulty lifting or rotating your arm. Pain can be associated with shoulder motion. 
It is normal for the rotator cuff tendon to wear/degrade with age. The rotator cuff becomes weak and prone to rupture or tear, causing pain and weakness of the shoulder. This condition is often caused by trauma, usually from trying to lift or catch a heavy object. It can also be caused by overuse after a period of inactivity and by poor blood supply to the area of the cuff, which can occur with increasing age. Falling on the outstretched arm can bring the symptoms on as can gradual weakening of the tendons of the shoulder associated with impingement. Usually patients with rotator cuff injury experience severe pain at time of injury, pain worse at night, weakness of the involved muscle and limitation of the range of motion. Many factors are considered in diagnosing rotator cuff injuries or tears. Subjective history including mechanism of injury, activities that aggravate or ease pain, current limitations to function and physical examination findings. Occasionally, diagnostic imaging is used to confirm the diagnosis such as MRI scans.  The appropriate treatment plan for you depending on the severity of your condition. You may need surgical referral especially it was confirmed that you have a  complete tear. There are many treatments, are available for this condition such as a supervised physical therapy, and intra-articular platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections.
