Rotator cuff shoulder injuries in sports are usually a result of microtrauma from repetitive movements. For competitive or
recreational athletes involved in baseball, tennis, or swimming, shoulder disorders – especially rotator cuff injuries – can be
debilitating and cause significant disabilities. Therefore, prompt diagnosis and treatment can improve symptoms profoundly.
