The Worst Exercises for the Rotator Cuff

Share

Injuries from exercise can happen instantly or slowly. You don’t have to have a sudden traumatic injury to tear your rotator cuff.

A rotator cuff injury can develop gradually as a result of overuse or wear and tear with age. The rotator cuff is made up of a set of four small muscles: the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis. These muscles work together to lift, rotate, and stabilize the shoulder, ensuring that the humerus is held in place against the socket. Rotator cuff tears are very common shoulder injuries and repetitive motions or improper exercises can cause damage or injury if not corrected in time.

Exercising and stretching is a healthy way to maintain overall wellness but if the muscles become overworked or these are performed incorrectly, the constant and repetitive activities can damage or injure the muscles and tendons, such as the rotator cuff in the shoulder. The rotator cuff is in charge of allowing arm mobility and can therefore become injured if not cautious. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
