The shoulder is complicated. It is capable of a huge range of movement made possible through an intricate system of ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves and joints. If just one link in the movement chain becomes problematic, the effect is felt throughout the shoulder complex causing damage and pain, particularly in the rotator cuff which gives the shoulder its stability and control.
Poor posture, poor upper body strength, and ageing are all factors that can compromise the rotator cuff tendons and increase the risk of injury. Read my blog for things you can do to keep your shoulder tendons healthy and decrease the likelihood of a rotator cuff injury.
