Yes: At your age, a rotator cuff tear would be a very serious injury. It is extremely rare for a 31 year old to have a rotator cuff tear. A strain of the rotator cuff, however, usually resolve on their own without too much worry or too much long term difficulties. If may be time to see your friendly neighborhood orthopedic surgeon!
