Can rotator cuff tear cause carpel tunnel?

No

Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
However one can have both problems at the same time. Carpal tunnal can on occasionj cause shoulder pain, carpal tunnel may alter mechanics in the way the hand and arm are used and a rotator cuff tear that is present becomes more symptomatic. A rotator cuff tear may also give pain down the arm and a unstable shoulder may give tingling in the hand the seems like carpal tunnel. These are not causes!

does a rotator cuff injury cause collar bone pain?

Possibly

Rotator_cuff
The rotator cuff is located beneath both the acromion and the clavicle. The body has a tough time deciding where the pain is because of the low density of nerve fibers and organs in the area. Therefore rotator cuff pain can be across the back, in the clavicle or down the arm. You should get it checked out.

Can a torn rotator cuff cause a sleepy hand and arm?

No

Rotator_cuff
Symptoms of a torn rotator cuff include pain, weakness, and loss of motion in the shoulder. The pain may be on the side of the shoulder and radiate to the elbow. A sleepy hand and arm would usually indicate compression of a nerve.

How could a rotator cuff tear be caused in baseball?

Very Common

Rotator_cuff
Rotator cuff injuries are most frequently seen in the sport of baseball. The reason is that all positions involve throwing, with the pitcher and catcher doing the most. The overhead throwing motion can cause rubbing of the tendon on the acromion bone. This is increased with weakness or fatique of the muscle. Progressive strengthening and conditioning is critical.

Dr. Lauren Elson answered:

Can an injured rotator cuff cause fingers to tingle?

Possible/unlikely

Open-uri20130916-24201-16iviom
If there is a significant amount of swelling around the nerves that pass through to the arm and hand, a rotator cuff tear COULD cause those symptoms. It is far more likely that a nerve is being pinched- either in the neck or tight muscles around the neck/shoulder. A physiatrist can diagnose and treat these conditions.

Can a rotator cuff tear cause arm and hand numbness?

Not usually

Extremity-upper-hand
The shoulder is usually an 'innocent bystander' when it comes to neurologic problems such as numbness and weakness that is found beyond the shoulder in the arm and forearm. The more likely culprit for these complaints is actually nerve compression emanating from the cervical spine.

Dr. Vivek Agrawal answered:

What causes the stiffness from a rotator cuff injury?

Frozen Shoulder?

Rotator_cuff
Stiffness by itself is not diagnostic of a rotator cuff tear but rather a frozen or stiff shoulder. Any sort of shoulder injury or trauma can initiate the process of adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder). Learn more here: http://theshouldercenter.com/Frozen-Shoulder.htm
