What is Rotator Cuff Tear?

Rotator Cuff Tear is the network of four muscles and several tendons that form a covering around the top of the upper arm bone. These muscles form a cover around the head of the humerus. The rotator cuff holds the humerus in place in the shoulder joint and enables the arm to rotate. Rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. Most tears occur in the supraspinatus muscle, but other parts of the cuff may be involved.
