How large is the tear?

I tore mine last summer, and it healed up fine, but it was only a partial tear.

yeah, I was very active in sports in my youth and it was my dominant arm so perhaps it simply never had the proper rest to set and heal properly. I cannot say. I am old now and it is not painful, but it never healed properly or fully.

It likely depends on many factors. I am no doctor.

If you want the highest chance of recovery, get a few opinions and do what you need to do based on your circumstance.

Best wishes man.

God Bless.

Re: Does a torn rotator cuff heal on its own?
op, did you tear the bicep muscle also? if you tear the bicep also, you're gonna need surgery.

you really need a ct or mri of the shoulder to see how much damage has been done. if it's really bad, do it.

if not so bad, start with small exercises and build the muscles around it.

i tore both my rotators at the same time(long story) and the bicep in my right arm. had surgery on right arm. hurt like a mofo for a loooooong time.

i'm doing okay now, still hurts at time, but could be much worse.

SAMe, glucosamine, clondritin, manganese, vitamin C and lysine.

3 times a day for 6 months. Should heal.

There is so much variation in this type of injury that it is hard to say if you would need surgery or not without an MRI.

I didn't tear the bicep and I'm optimistic it will heal, with some help from glucosamine chondroitin. I don't think it's too terribly damaged because it really only hurts when I put a shirt or coat on. Oweee!

I presume your employer is aware of your condition now and is blaming an insurance company rule as to why they won't pay to fix you. Bad news is that they will now be looking for reasons to fire you, as you are not as useful as you once were to the company. "Pre-existing" conditions are one of the favorite ways for insurance companies to deny coverage.

My brother in law is going through that as I speak. Works for a company for 12 years with no problems, then gets run over by a truck while riding home on his scooter and is left with a permanently injured leg. Goes through the rehab and gets back to work and now he is getting written warnings for not doing his job.

Make sure you protect yourself from "wrongful termination" by doing your best and keeping track of everything. They will make shit up and you better be able to disprove it.

Re: Does a torn rotator cuff heal on its own?
Yes, it will, gradually, but just don't expect it to ever be perfectly the same and perfectly normal again.

But that's just typical of getting older.

We hurt ourselves.

Before our generation, nobody ever got surgery for such a thing.

30 years ago, my grandpa used to tell me that when you get older, everything hurts... and I'm getting there...

Re: Does a torn rotator cuff heal on its own?
I tore my rotator cuff about 5 years ago falling off a horse. It was not real painful Just a dull constant pain in my upper arm. The Doctor said it can not heal on its own because its a tendon that is torn loose from the shoulder. The longer you wait the more the tendon gets fryed like the end of a rope. I had the surgery and it was about a year before It felt back to normal. The hard part is the rehab. You have to really work hard at it or your arm will lock up to your side.
My advice
Go see a doctor, get the MRI. It may not be torn, It may just be a bad sprain. I have had several of those where I could not use my arm for awhile.

Re: Does a torn rotator cuff heal on its own?
I recommend getting the surgery. but if you do not want the surgery I recommend doing these exercises

it can heal but it will take a long time because you do not have very much blood flow going to that part of your body.. expect at least 3 to six months to possibly fully recover without surgery but if your rotator cuff is not attached properly to the bone surgery might be your only choice..

wait about three months doing rotator cuff exercises but if no improvement occurs get the surgery..

Probably too late for that. Workman's comp won't pay unless you report it right after getting hurt.

Mine healed in about 6 months. I was rubbing an ointment that my gypsy grandmother gave me. It was made up of garlic,chicken fat,and a scotch bonnet pepper paste. You make this up and rub it on your shoulder area thrice a day. IT works wonders.

Re: Does a torn rotator cuff heal on its own?
The surgery wasnt bad at all nor the recovery. I had a torn RC for near 5 years and didnt know aside from the pain in my shoulder. Doctors ignored it as much as I did.

So, the neurologist confirmed a tear via MRI, which I think was the worse part, and the surgical procedure was to build a surgical nylon net for support and some cleaning up of tissue then tear repair. I had like four 1/2 inch incisions and a pain pump. I have other neurological issues but my shoulders range of motion is a lot better.

Good luck!

Re: Does a torn rotator cuff heal on its own?
u dont have to have surgery
that actually might make it worse leaving scar tissue


it might take a year or more
but you can make it heal by
physical therapy moving it around every day
and steriod shots
