Exercise Instructions to Aid in Recovery

Disclaimer: Sports Medicine & Shoulder Surgery provides these protocols used by our physicians. These protocols are general outlines for patients to use as guidelines to progress through rehabilitation following surgery. Please keep in mind that these are general guidelines and may not be the same for all patients because people often heal and tolerate surgery differently. While progress should occur at your own pace, you do want to make improvements on a daily and weekly basis to reach progression within the protocol. You will be evaluated regularly throughout the rehabilitation process, and will be progressed appropriately by your therapist and physician.
