I just had an MRI a few days ago and was told I have a partial tear of my supraspinatus tendon. I haven’t seen an ortho yet, but was wondering about the reality of surgery vs exercises in terms of total healing. I injured myself while in school for massage therapy and although it is much better than it was initially, I still have difficulty when I try to do deep tissue massages. Just want to know the pros and cons of each, with/without surgery. Also, can anyone give me the approximate “down time” if you do have the surgery? Thanks
