I know athletes are more prone to this injury. I don't know why I got it, but I made it worse doing crew/rowing this summer. I've had quite a bit of pain on and off; two rounds of therapy, two cortisone injects, which certainly lessened the pain. But the medico says this will not heal itself. Has anyone had experience, especially doing Primal, that you can indeed get the tear to heal? I have become such a skeptic about medical procedures, even while being very grateful for them. I had spinal surgery ten years ago that was a great success. Still......I'm ditherng on this one, and find I will have as much or more recuperation time as I did with a major back surgery.

I look forward to hearing about any of your experiences with torn rotator cuff--sounds like a GTO malfunction.
