This is one of the most common shoulder injuries caused in a car accident. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that keeps the upper arm bone in the shoulder socket. When any of these muscles and tendons are torn, a person can experience a dull ache, difficulty moving the arm, and weakness in the arm.
