What Happens If Rotator Cuff Is Not Repaired?

Not all rotator cuff injuries require surgical repair. Rotator cuff issues increase along with age, and most don’t cause issues. Many middle-aged and elderly adults have asymptomatic (no pain/weakness/lack of motion) or minimally symptomatic rotator cuff injuries. A person can often maintain full function of his or her shoulder with an appropriate stretching and strengthening regimen. Traumatic rotator cuff injuries are much more likely to require surgical repair, and if not treated appropriately can lead to long-term pain and functional limitations.
