Rotator Cuff Injury (cont.)

Rotator Cuff Injury Prevention

  • Accidents happen and falls may be difficult to prevent, especially in sporting activities.
  • Overuse injuries may be prevented by appropriately warming up before performing tasks that will stress the shoulder joint. This applies to daily and work activities as well as sports. Stretching before or after an activity is also a reasonable prevention strategy.
