Rotator cuff pain typically presents with dull to sharp pain to the outside of the shoulder and can refer all the way to the outside of the elbow.
The most common symptoms of rotator cuff problems can range from the inability to completely raise a person’s shoulder to pain during a certain part of shoulder range of motion.
Regardless, pain and immobility of the shoulder indicate pathology or improper mechanics of the shoulder girdle which comprises the coordinated events of proper shoulder girdle motion.
Diagnosing rotator cuff problems involves a good examination, a medical/bio-mechanical diagnosis and plan of action.
Many individuals who are actively exercising will experience rotator cuff injuries resulting from lack of training to these muscles.
In this video we cover a few rotator cuff strengthening exercises.
Remember if you have any problems with your shoulder do not perform any of these exercises and seek medical help.
