Schroeder 2a. The rotator cuff is located at the shoulder joint and is composed of muscles and tendons that give the shoulder the ability to move. Tenderness and inflammation of these tendons is called rotator cuff tendinitis which can occur from over use, keeping the arm in the same position for extended periods of time, poor stance, and injury. While physical therapy can help to alleviate pain, sometimes a shoulder arthroscopy, a surgery in which a small camera is used to observe and fix the tissues in and around the shoulder, is needed to repair the damage done inside the rotator cuff.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
