    Default Best and fastest way to recover from injured rotator cuff?

    Hi BC. Has anyone ever damaged their rotator cuff? If so how did you deal with it? I've been carrying injuries to both shoulders and they aren't healing. if anything they are getting worse. Is rest the only cure? Thanks in advance.

    took a diving catch during cricket and wrenched my shoulder halfway around my torso... not fun

    since i am at the gym 3-4 times a week plus twice for badminton my physio told me to do light exercises at home strictly to keep the flexibility and blood circulation going in my shoulder.
    3 weeks until it regained strength

    Did the health provider who confirmed your shoulder problem as rotator cuff give you any instructions?
    If you saw them once and they told you to try and rest it, then go back and they will guide you on the next step.
    Shoulder injuries can become chronic if not cared for properly. Treatment depends on the specific problem you have and its severity and duration. Don't rely on us in this peanut gallery for advice for your particular situation. You need someone to see you.

    originally i twisted my shoulder badly so i went to the physio who gave me a big elastic band and specific exercises for thanksmy rotator cuff which injured them. like the idea of rest and circulation.
