Tears to rotator cuff

December 19, 2019


I was wondering if you had any advice after my Dr just diagnosed me with having partial tears in the rotator cuff area of one shoulder?

Thank you

Hi Erica

We’ve got lots of advice!

Torn rotator cuffs respond really, really well to rehab – have a look at these 2 exercises:




These help to deal with the causes, mostly a stiff thoracic spine and poor control of the shoulder sitting in the shoulder joint.

Taping can also help as does taking some over the counter anti inflams (if possible)

Try this approach for the next 5/7 days and see how you feel at the end – and if anything makes you feel worse, stop.
