I have a good sized tear in my supraspinatus tendon of my rotator cuff (2.5 x 2.6 cm) from a shoulder dislocation. Six months of healing and two months of intensive physical therapy have helped greatly, but side reaching/lifting motions simply don't work. If anyone has had a similar injury, I'd really like to hear about your experience. I fear surgery, yet I worry that I could get a larger tear which would be harder to repair, if I don't deal with it..
