The rotator cuff provides support and stability to the joint of the shoulder. Injuries to the rotator cuff can occur during sports, exercise, or even everyday activities.
This video discusses the most common causes of rotator cuff injuries in women. Many women start an intensive exercise program without adequate preparation, risking injury to the shoulder because it is not strong enough to handle such activity. These types of strains occur often, but are not serious and often do not require intensive or surgical care.
