Rotator cuff injury (updated) Back on the 10th of February I was doing shoulders at the gym. While doing military press I heard a popping, cracking sound and my left shoulder lost all strength. To day I was diagnosed with a minor tear/pinch of the left rotator cuff requiring 4-6 weeks of physiotherapy. My question is: How long did it take you to recover from your rotator cuff injuries? ________________ Just as an update. The particular asshat doctor I saw misdiagnosed my shoulder. My physiotherapist (teh hotness) believes it is torn cartilage because my range of motion is excellent (without severe pain) as is my remaining strength. So I'm two months out of the gym and I have 6 weeks of physiotherapy ahead of me.
