What is a rotator cuff tear?

Rotator cuff tears are amongst the most common causes of shoulder pain. The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles and their tendons, which connect the shoulder blade to the upper arm bone (humerus) forming the shoulder joint. A rotator cuff tear will weaken your shoulder and restrict mobility.
