Rotator cuff tears (tendon tears around the shoulder joint) can repair over time, but depends on a number of factors including, site, size of tear, age of patient, cause of tear. In the elderly population rotator cuff tears are very common but do not bother them. With the correct physio/exercises one can incorporate the rest of the rotator cuff to compensate and so may not need surgical intervention.
