Rotator cuff rupture

Rehabilitation treatment after rotator cuff injury is very different depending on the reconstruction and the surgery that has been performed, so we'll just provide some basic principles. Arthroscopic access, when possible, has more advantages in the duration and quality of the recovery intervention rather than open air surgery.

The rehabilitative period therefore depends on the type of surgery, the type of guardian and limitation of its use.

After removing the guardian you can start the recovery of range of motion in the pool with movements in flexion-extension and avoiding external rotation. And most of all, in this delicate phase, should be avoided sudden movements and forcing. This phase ends with the consultation of the surgeon only upon completion of the ROM.

Next you need to strengthen the muscles of the shoulder girdle, the deltoid, biceps/triceps, dorsal and pectoral and then the intra-rotators and external rotators of the shoulder through isometric exercises at first and then isotonic with increasing intensity elastic.

After the isokinetic testing to confirm that you have objectively recovered the strength, you must complete the therapeutic procedure with the resumption of preoperative sports activities with fluidity, resistance to movement exercises and education and prevention.
