MayBeYesMayBeNot: Depends on the severity and thichness of the tear.Some rotater cuff tears heal with conservative treatment and others require surgery.You have to consult an Orthopedic Specialist and he/she can tell you what your prognosis .Tears can be just minor inflammation&tear or a complete tear of one or more muscles or tendons requiring surgery followed by PT.
