Rotator-cuff injuries: What to know when your shoulder is injured

While it's not always the most serious of injuries, an injury to the rotator cuff can be life-altering. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles that help you rotate and move your shoulder joint. When any of these are injured, you may feel pain or have weakness that makes it impossible to use your arm normally.

Sledge hammers fly, plaster and drywall crumble as the team works to achieve that open concept the homeowners want so badly. Suddenly, the contractor stops.
