Rotator Cuff Tear
The four muscles in the shoulder between the scapula and the ball in your shoulder joint turn into tendons (the white part) as the muscles get closer to the bone. Rotator cuff is a general term referencing the specific area where the tendon connects to the bone. Thus, the term rotator cuff tear means a tear in the tendon where it connects to the bone.
