Maybe: Some rotator cuff tears are traumatic in nature and can occur despite any preventative measures. The majority are degenerative or overuse injuries, and maintenance of certain shoulder and scapular musculature may help prevent slow underlying damage. In short, it can probably help, but everyone is unique and not all conditions will be preventable.
