Subject: Anyone had experience with a torn rotator cuff?
Have a significant tear in my supraspinatus tendon but not full thickness. Think I injured it in a mountain bike spill. Have read TONS and really want to avoid surgery. Have a PT appt. Friday and would much prefer that route. It doesn't heal the tear but strengthens surrounding supporting muscles. Looking for some feedback. This has thrown me for a major loop and I am deep, deep, deep in the valley.

Do what the doctor tells you.

I had a very minor one.

If it needs surgery according to a doctor, do it. Because I gather you can reach a point later in life when it can't be fixed.

But, if PT does the trick, according to the Doc. You're golden.
