Unfortunately torn rotator cuffs are not uncommon in people over the age of 40, especially if their job involves repetitive movements of their arms over their head. As we age our tendons just start to wear down, they become abnormally loose and eventually tear. The problem is that a torn rotator cuff will often start out as mildly unpleasant and gradually get much worse, so people don’t get the care that they need right away because they don’t even realize there is a serious problem. Fortunately there are fairly obvious symptoms to watch out for that can indicate a tear, such as weakness in your arm or shoulder, or pain when you try to complete trivial activities.
