Patient :I injured my shoulder about 3 weeks ago by falling with my arm extended. From moving my arm and feeling where and when it felt painful, I concluded that I had a torn rotator cuff. That was 2 or 3 weeks ago, and now I have about 80 or 90% of my full range of motion back without pain for most motions. Will this eventually heal on its own?
Symptoms: At first, constant shoulder pain. After 2 days, pain when lifting arm.
