Well-functioning shoulder rotator cuffs are essential to perform every-day activities such as brushing our hair and overhead reaching as well as many sports such as golf, pickle ball, swimming, and tennis. Repetition and aging can have an impact on our shoulders and the muscles and tendons that support them. Rotator cuff injury is the most common cause of shoulder pain, particularly for those over the age of 30. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent rotator cuff injuries and new ways to repair them and restore their functioning.

Dr. Roache will discuss the anatomy of shoulder rotator cuff and explain common injuries, symptoms, and treatments.
