Case description

Dr. Ebraheim explains in his video that rotator cuff injuries can lead to sleep disorders. The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles surrounding the shoulder joint. Rotator cuff injuries can cause pain, weakness, and limited mobility in the shoulder. These symptoms can make it challenging to find a comfortable sleeping position. People with rotator cuff injuries often have trouble sleeping on the affected side and may have to sleep on their back or stomach. Additionally, pain and discomfort can disrupt sleep, leading to insomnia and other sleep disorders. Dr. Ebraheim advises seeking medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms of a rotator cuff injury, as early treatment can prevent further damage and improve the patient's chances of full recovery.
