What is the best way to heal shoulder muscle tear besides getting a surgery?

Depends

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Understanding which tendon is torn and how much can better answer your question. The rotator cuff has five distinct layers and if it is torn top to bottom (full thickness), this will not heal and will progress over time. If speaking of a tear of the long head of the bicep, this does not typically require surgery and results most frequently in a "popeye" cosmetic deformity.

Assuming you mean you have a tear of your rotator cuff a well designed scapular stabilization and shoulder strengthening program without further stressing the injury may be helpful. http://www.theshouldercenter.com/Rotator-Cuff-Tear.htm The two most common reasons patients choose surgical treatment are persistent weakness and pain (especially night pain).

How should I treat a torn shoulder muscle?

See an ortho doc

A "torn shoulder muscle" most commonly refers to a rotator cuff tear. Some patients will have rotator cuff tears that are amenable to initial non-operative management while others will require more aggressive treatment to lessen the risk of long-term shoulder dysfunction. An orthopedic surgeon with an expertise in shoulders, after an office evaluation, can best advise you.

Can a shoulder muscle spasm cause hand numbness?

Yes

Extremity-joint-shoulder
There are many causes for this...most common is of a nerve being pinched in the neck that can lead to spasming of the shoulder region with numbness of the hand. This is known as a cervical radiculopathy. There are other possibilities including an injury to the brachial plexus or carpal tunnel syndrome. You should see either a physiatrist or neurologist for a full exam.

Shoulder sources include: arthritis, labral tears, instability, tendinitis, rotator cuff tears, bursitis, painful bony spurs etc. Shoulder blade pain can be from the neck or bursitis around the blade. A herniated disk in the neck could be causing your symptoms. See an orthopedist.

Why does my right shoulder muscle spasm periodically?

Could be

many things, usually if you work with any muscle and it fatigues it can spasm. Common in calf muscles, quad muscles after running around all day. common in ab muscles if you started a new sit-up program, etc. Outside of that if it is not painful wouldnt worry about it. Stay hydrated and eat a banana to keep electrolytes up.
