Our expert says:
a tear of the rotator cuff never heals and in fact the tear can progress to a point where it can become irrepairable.
My best advice is that you consult with a surgeon who is experienced in treating those tears either privately or at the state hospital. Do have a look at our website: www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and specifically at Rotator cuff tears for more information
