Treatment and Rehabilitation of Rotator Cuff Tears
During this past summer, I shadowed Marzena Kielian. PT, OPT, as well as the other physical therapists in the office. I spent most of the time following one of Marzena's patients through his rotator cuff rehabilitation. I was able to see his prograss from before surgery, through surgery, and after his rotator cuff repair. I followed him through his therapy sessions and his appointments with his surgeon. While the surgery methods and rehabilitation protocol presented here are the typical pattern, they are by no means the absolute rule. Each patient will progress at his own pace, spending more time on the motions where he is deficient.
