Prognosis

Physio Note: Sleeping and Exercise

Try not to spend long periods sleeping on the affected side. Sleeping with the arm above your head is also to be avoided as it can compress the cuff tendons and thereby compromise blood flow needed for healing

It is important to avoid provocative overhead activities or those that work the arm fully outstretched and rotated inward. Your physical therapist will help identify the offending activity and assign a series of progressed stretch and strengthening exercises
