What Are The Signs Of Having Torn & Frayed Tendon Stump?

My husband has Severe supraspinatus and moderate infraspinatus tendinopathy with a large 1.5 cm anterior to posterior full-thickness tear of the anterior supraspinatus tendon with a markedly torn and frayed tendon stump. My question is does he has to have surgery or there is possibility he can do ok after PT. Thank you

Hi your husband is having full thickness supraspinatous tear.As it is a full thickness tear surgery is surely required in this case.Physiotheraphy can be helpfull but complete recovery and regaining of range of movement is not possible with just PT.Tear repair is required in such case.
