    Well, there is injured and there is torn. A torn rotator cuff need surgery. It won't heal by itself.

    An injured rotator cuff will respond to ART massage and remedial work. It will take a few sessions and, with the remedial work, will take a few months to come right. Its mostly fibrous tissue so it takes longer to heal.

    If it's just injured. A good physio, dry needling and rehab work if what you'll need. Plus a few months as its a bitch of an injury.

    Torn, sorry bud, surgery is the only option and rehab will take months.

    I have to disagree with the comment re surgery. I had a 12mm X 4mm tear in my supra last year. Saw three surgeons and all 3 recommended surgery. Was scheduled for surgery in Jan this year and cancelled with 2 days notice. It is about 80-85% better. I am benching again, not heavy but it's nowhere near as bad as it was.

    physio did little, what helped was REST and PRP, I had two PRP injections over 2-3 weeks.
