The rotator cuff is an important shoulder segment. It comprises muscles and tendons that hold the bones of the shoulder together. The rotator cuff muscles provide the ability to lift an arm and perform an overhead reach. When the rotator cuff is injured, people sometimes do not recover full shoulder function.
Rotator cuff tears and "floating shoulder" injuries are common to motor vehicle accidents.
Rotator cuff injuries occur when the muscles that hold the joint together are weak and the injuries diminish joint stability. When an accident pushes the upper arm bone into the shoulder, a rotator cuff injury can occur.
Another injury occurs when the collarbone or shoulder blade fractures. The fracture pushes the shoulder out of place - no longer attached to the body. "Floating shoulder" can be associated with motor vehicle accidents. These shoulder injuries are small when compared to the subsequent pain and disability.
