A tear in the shoulder is a long-lasting injury disabling the shoulder and putting it at constant risk. The most common shoulder injury is a rotator cuff tear but there may be other mild tears in your shoulder such as a biceps tendon tear. Regardless, you will likely get an MRI to determine the exact damage in your shoulder and your doctor will then recommend treatment.
There are billions of specialized cells in the human body able to form specific organs like the brain, skin, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and bone. Everyday, these cells go through a degenerative and regenerative process. When older cells die, it is stem cells that form themselves into new and healthy tissue that replaces the dead tissue.
Rotator cuff tears are common, especially as an athlete. They are a leading cause of disability among adults and in 2008, around 2 million people went to see doctors in the United States because of rotator cuff problems.
