A rotator cuff surrounds each shoulder joint, and is made up of muscles and tendons that keep the upper arm bone secure in the shoulder socket. These tissues often become irritated or damaged in automotive accidents. Injuries to the rotator cuff need to be treated as soon as possible to avoid complications.
Treatments for rotator cuff injuries include physical therapy and different kinds of surgery. Without proper treatment, the shoulder can continue to stiffen, causing long-term discomfort and making certain kinds of work impossible. For people whose jobs involve lifting or reaching overhead, these injuries can be catastrophic.
Rotator Cuff Injury Symptoms
- Dull ache in shoulder
- Pain that worsens with movement
- Difficulty lifting arm
- Trouble sleeping
Rotator cuff injuries are not always apparent immediately following an accident. Symptoms may begin days or weeks later, or might be masked by other injuries.
Without the right diagnosis, victims of rotator cuff injuries may suffer unnecessary complications and lose out on fair compensation.
