If a muscle is completely torn no amount of therapy will help. It has to be reattached surgically, It can not reattach itself. A muscle has to be attached at both end for it to work.

Had the surgery 20 years ago and the repaired side better than the non. Thing I found is make sure you work through the pain to get the range of motion back. Super important...the strength will come back with normal use but cant stress enough the ROM. Talked with a lot of others that had this and the ones that didn't pay attention to the ROM now severely limited. Did PT on the non side a few years ago when it started declining and it helped a lot, still do rubber band stretches couple times a week and that's keeping the RT strong and pain free.

Well in a get off October 2017 I received multiple tears to rotator cuff, two broken ribs, fractured clavicle and severed acromioclavicular ligament,?sp, Went a year before getting in for surgical correction. If lifting the arm it allowed the shoulder to drop down into the chest cavity and some loss of stability. I set myself up with a couple of three pound barbells and worked daily at strengthening the shoulder, (my youngest boy showed me some exercises), without stressing it. Helped a lot, but could no longer sleep on that side. Was able to do a three week, 7,177 mile run out West last August, did tire easier with some discomfort the last 1,000 miles or so. Surgery this past October and now very good motion and minimal pain. Because of my strengthening work no P.T. Has been necessary. Oh, and back to sleeping side to side. Do use the pillow between knees, many years now, with good results. Now Arthur Ritis is who I have the most problem with but I’ll take it. Learned today that my surgery was way more complicated than Inwas led to believe. Two days in hospital and discharged to home.
