Up to Six Months
Recovery from a rotator cuff
that has been repaired surgically typically takes up to 6 months.
The tendon heals to bone slowly, and at 3 months, that repair interface is only 20% as strong as normal ! most surgeons start range of motion exercises right away, however delay strengthening to the 3 month time point. It takes a few months longer to truly get your strength and endurance back.
