Rotator Cuff Syndrome is a shoulder injury. Unfortunately, a rotator cuff injury is very common. To understand the commonalty what exactly a rotator cuff syndrome, one will need to understand the anatomy of the shoulder. The anatomy of the shoulder consist of an unstable ball and a socket joint. Both sound very fragile, which is why the shoulder depends on muscular support. That muscular support consist a group of four muscles, known as the rotator cuff. Those muscles are the subscapularis, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and teres minor. In other words, you shoulder is supported by four muscles.
The rotator cuff is responsible of the movements of your shoulder, and the ability to rotate it. Plus, it protects the humerus (shoulder ball). When you develop a rotator cuff syndrome, it hurts to rotate your shoulder. One possible explanation is that the tendons (where the shoulder joints are) are inflamed and causing irritation/pressure within your shoulder muscles.
