They heal: I have found 6-8 weeks around the sametime it takes for bone to heal.

How long will it take to heal a partially torn tendon?

About 6 weeks: The answer varies depending upon the actual degree of tendon torn since a partial tear covers everything from a very minimal tear to a significant partial tear that may act more like a full thickness tear. Six weeks is a good number to remember realizing it could be less for a minimal tear. A significnat partial tendon tear may actually require surgical intervention, so check with your docotr.
