Rotator Cuff

Our Rotator Cuff is formed by  a group of four muscles & tendons which provide strength and stability to the shoulder during movement.

 

The muscles are:

· Supraspinatus

· Infraspinatus

· Teres Minor

· Subscapularis

 

These originate from the Scapular and attach onto head of Humerus forming a cuff at the Glenohumeral joint (the ball and socket joint).
