Hi

Thanks for your query.

Heat will help improve the blood supply to the muscles and also relieve pain of muscle spasm.

There are a few exercises to strengthen injured rotator cuff muscles. It involves the use of a theraband. Do try these exercises every alternate day and let me know if they work for you. I am attaching a link to a YouTube video for your guidance.
