The tendon typically tears from it's insertion at the top of the shoulder (greater tuberosity)

The rotator cuff is comprised of four small muscles, the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and teres minor. These muscles are responsible for proper motion and stability of the shoulder joint.". For more info (please visit http://drmarkgalland.Com/category/shoulder/.
