Biceps Tendinitis

What is it ?

A rotator cuff is a group of four small important shoulder muscles that control, move and stabilise your shoulder joint. When the four muscles work in isolation, they do exhibit a rotational motion at the shoulder joint, hence the name.

The shoulder is an amazing joint with incredible flexibility.

Many other joints in the body are extremely stable, thanks to the structure of the bones and ligaments surrounding them. However, the shoulder has so much movement that some stability is sacrificed. It is for this reason that shoulder dislocations are a relatively common occurrence.
