Pain and Weakness : "the incidence of rotator cuff tears increases with age, and a specific injury is not required. The rotator cuff is comprised of four small muscles, the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor. These muscles are responsible for proper motion and stability of the shoulder joint.". For more info (please visit http://drmarkgalland.Com/category/shoulder/.
