See therapist: When you have an injury as serious as a rotator cuff, the rehab should really be under the guidance of a licensed OT or PT, unless you yourself are a therapist and understand the therapy. Once you have been to a therapist for a while, you can do self-directed therapy. Suggest you just see an OT and see if they can help you
