The rotator cuff is a chain of four muscles in the shoulder, which makes a cuff of tissue around the humerus bone in the shoulder joint. These muscles are responsible for providing rotational strength to the shoulder. If tears take place in the tendons of these muscles, then they are known as rotator cuff tears, and the supraspinatus is the most commonly affected muscle. It can be corrected through shoulder rotator cuff surgery that is performed by professionals. UBMD Ortho experts also provides the top notch rotator cuff injury treatment. From simple to complex fractures, the doctors at UBMD Ortho offer a full range of treatment options for patients.
