Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. The mild tears usually heal with time, so have patience.
I would like to treat you with-
1. Rest to shoulder joint that is avoid lifting heavy weights and activities which involve lifting arm above head.
2. Hot water fomentation along with physiotherapy has a role for early recovery.
3. Pain killer tablet like Aleve especially at bedtime as pain is more at night time.
4. Short course of oral cortisone like Deflazacort helps.
It usually takes few weeks time for pain and restricted movement to go away.
Hope this suffices and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
