The quick answer to this is yes! However, there are a number of factors to consider.
1. Timeline: You have to know timeline of tissue healing after surgery. Typically in this situation, you must check with your doctor or physical therapist to make sure it wouldn’t interfere with the tissue healing process. Now, if you are going for a general massage, you should just let your massage therapist know about the surgery, but otherwise you should ok as long as they don’t work on it specifically.
2. Qualifications: Now if you are going to have your massage therapist specifically work on the surgically repaired area, you must check thier background and credentials in working with patients like this. The average massage therapist does not have the knowledge base to help and can possible complicate the healing process. Working with Rotator Cuff repairs is a delicate process for both the PT and the massage therapist. This union of both professions can help mitigate the pain and increase range of motion faster.
The long story short is if you have a qualified massage therapist, you should progress really well. If you don’t, it could set you back a couple more months.
