6 weeks?


Answer by  Travis404607 (3916)

Rotator cuff injuries take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to heal, depending on the extent of the injury, the health of a patient, and the physical terapy required.

It really depends on how your body handles the surgury. Normally 6 weeks but it can take longer. Everyone heals differently.


Answer by  Trina94 (94)

Recovery time following surgical repair of the rotator cuff is highly variable and depends on a number of factors, including age, surgical approach, self-motivation, etc. Full recovery can take anywhere from 4 months to a full year.


Answer by  bvaniea (312)

It would depend on the extent of the damage to the area. If multiple muscles had been torn and repaired or if the joint capsule itself was damaged then repaired it could take longer. If it was from just a weakness in the ligaments causing multiple dislocations then it would not take as long to heal.
