    Internal rotation, external rotation, shoulder flexion, shoulder abduction, transverse extension (high rows), transverse abduction (rear delt). Not muscles you should just work when they're injured--wait till inflammation and pain is down and start with high reps low weight and progress weight up if reps are over 15-20. I work mine 1-2x a week with no injury for maintenance.

    Edit: got transverse extension and abduction mixed up

    and what did they say to do? Do some rotator stretches and Strenghtening?

    I went to Topics > Injury and Preventions and then searched on Rotator Cuff:

    Have had this injury - a long recovery! I recommend you find an orthopedic and work with them and a PT. It is VERY easy to further damage this type of injury and thus requiring surgery.

    Absolutely!

    +This ..

    Would also recommend doing Pilates as they concentrate on movement of the shoulder joint, freeing the shoulder blade and strengthening the muscles without pressure on the joints.
