Facts about Rotator Cuff Injuries

As I read more and more about rotator cuff injuries I come across some very interesting facts about the shoulder and the rotator cuff, so I decided to gather them all in one post for you:

1. Almost eight million people in the US will suffer from a shoulder injury this year and over half of them will be a direct result of injuring the rotator cuff
2. About 6 million people in the U.S. seek medical care each year for shoulder problems
3. Rotator cuff tears are most common in men at the age of 65 and older
4. Although the rotator cuff can tear as a result of an injury, most rotator cuff problems develop over time
5. Rotator cuff injuries are the most common ones among all shoulder injuries
6. A healthy shoulder is the most versatile joint in the human body
7. Rotator cuff tear is most common in people who are over the age of 40
8. The shoulder is one of the major joints of the human body, which put it at the highest risk for injury
9. Almost any activity requires the use of the shoulder and when the shoulder is injured, the normal lifestyle is being severely damaged
10. A rotator cuff tear can occur in many ways, and no two rotator cuff tears are the same

I think these are very interesting facts…

About Molly Scott

Hi, my name is Molly and I used to suffer from a rotator cuff injury due to excessive workout at the gym. I tried different training programs to heal my shoulder pain. I fail to stick to any of them, accept for one program - The Rotator Cuff Recovery Kit. If you truly suffer from shoulder or rotator cuff injury, I don't recommend you to skip this program.
