Rotator cuff injury symptoms include shoulder pain, weakness, and restricted movement, necessitating timely evaluation and treatment.

Elective rotator cuff surgery is an option for large injuries or persistent symptoms unresponsive to nonsurgical treatment.

Shoulder impingement symptoms include pain, weakness, and limited arm movement, often requiring medical evaluation.

A SLAP injury occurs when the shoulder’s labrum cartilage gets frayed or torn. Treatment includes medication, physical therapy, and surgery for severe cases.

SLAP tears are characterized by deep, dull shoulder joint pain, weakness, and stiffness. Radiating pain occurs if the rotator cuff is also damaged.
