I'm 51. Had a rotator cuff injury at age 8, never repaired. It healed, but I still have reduced range of motion. Has it been too long to consider repair?

It is extremely rare to have a complete rotator cuff tear at that age so I would not rule it out. You would need a thorough work-up including a clinical exam and an MRI arthrogram to evaluate your cuff integrity and muscle volume. thanks sdmartin
