For a younger person, will the repair be as strong as original? CAn an athelet resume strength training and rough-and-tumble sports with confidence

The younger the patient the better the tissue and also the better the results. Most patients can get back to resuming rigorous activity in cases with isolated cuff tears if they are recognized early and treated. thanks sdmartin.
