Hip Rotator Cuff
Hurt shoulder and can't lift it up to the side past hip without major pain.Had MRI waiting on results. Doc thinks i tore my rotator cuff?
While its difficult: To say without a physical exam, your symptoms do sound like a torn rotator cuff. If you are able to continue to lift it up to the side, but it just hurts, then you may only have partial thickness tear, but if you are unable to lift it even near parallel to the ground, then it may be full thickness.

It's a tendon: A tendon is what attaches a muscle to a bone. This is what allows the skeleton to move. The muscle generates a force that is transmitted to the bone, through a tendon. In the shoulder, the rotator cuff starts out as 4 muscles attached to the shoulder blade. As they move toward the shoulder joint, the muscle turns into tendon. This tendon is the rotator cuff and helps to move the shoulder joint. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
