Hartford, CT- One of the most common reasons for shoulder pain in people over 40 is a tear of the rotator cuff. In young patients, this may occur from a traumatic injury or overuse as in the case of professional athletes. The rotator cuff is made up of the shoulder muscles and tendons that allow a person to reach overhead and perform activities like swimming or swinging a golf club.
