Rotator cuff injuries are common at any age and can be due to trauma, overuse, or simply degenerative changes that happen over time. Common signs and symptoms of rotator cuff injury include pain, weakness, and difficulty with activities like reaching overhead, lifting, or reaching behind your back.
