Typically, a rotator cuff tear presents with weakness and pain. Oftentimes patients present with what we call nocturnal pain – nocturnal meaning nighttime pain – so if you’re having pain at night in your shoulder and you’re having trouble sleeping, if you’re having trouble lifting your arm over your head, and if you’re over the age of 40-50, then those would be signs and symptoms that are consistent with some sort of a rotator cuff tear, whether it be a partial tear or perhaps a full thickness tear.
