if you have a torn tendon in the shoulder it depends which tendon: the most commonly torn tendon in the shoulder is that of the rotator cuff - they do not heal unless they are repaired by a surgeon. You should be sure that it is definitely torn and surgeons would determine that by doing ultra-sound or MRI scans. You may look at our website : www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and look under "shoulder problems" and then at "Rotator cuff tear".
