Rotator Cuff Full Thickness Tear

A rotator cuff full thickness tear is also called a complete tear. The tissue is split into two pieces whereby there is basically a hole in the tendon. Most common symptoms include: pain when lying on the affected shoulder, pain when lifting and lowering your arms, weakness when lifting the arm, and a crackling sensation when moving the shoulder in certain positions.
