The rotator cuff is four little muscles (the infraspinatus, supraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles) strategically placed around the shoulder joint. They attach to the upper arm bone (the humerus) and the other bones that make up the shoulder socket (collar bone, and spine of the shoulder blade).

The shoulder, with its ball-and-socket joint, has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. Since this is so, it is also the joint which is most easily prone to injury. Injuries can occur while performing routine daily activities when the arm is extended above the head such as while washing windows or putting dishes into an overhead cabinet. In addition, overuse and impact injuries can come while playing sports, particularly baseball and football. Depending on the severity of the injury, there are different options to help promote healing.
