Partial tendon tear in shoulder area (rotatory)

Hi there, anybody got injured in the shoulder (supraspinatus tendon) area before? Can share some exercises to help increase blood flow and self-heal ?

Specialist say no need operation as partial tear is small (less then 1cm)

- i have no idea how i damaged the tendon, either overhead press/ bench
- is what exercises i need to avoid? the pain is activated when i lift my hands up for overhead/bench for now
- i heard that the damaged tendon won't heal by-itself right (due to the nature of the muscle), then how ah? scar tissues will form only?
- how long did the pain last for you?
- any pointers in having better form in the future? or i should stop doing all this overhead/bench all together
