Well you are on the right path, so it usually takes longer time to disappear 6 weeks mostly..
Keep strengthening , stretching ,improve your joint stability ..

Take analgesics and continue doing the exercises,

Is this photo a recent one or one month ago?
Consult physiotherapist for further information

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Rotator cuff tears can be treated with non surgical.means with the help of anti inflammatory painkillers, muscle relaxant, steroid injections and Physiotherapy..

As 90% pain is gone it is a good sign..

Continue with Physiotherapy and if needed apply muscle relaxant gels and take a combination of painkillers and muscle relaxant..

Avoid heavy work load..

Hope this helps..
