Slap Lesion

After the surgery for Slap Lesion, the use of a brace in a moderate abduction and a neutral position is generally suggested for 3 or 4 weeks.

Between the 3
rd and 6th week post-surgery, a gradual recovery of passive mobility on all levels will be allowed. At this point the rehabilitation to restore the range of motion can be increased so to achieve the total mobility in 10-12 weeks from surgery.

Starting from the 3
rd week, the isometric submaximal reinforcement can begin, paying a particular attention to exercises that can stimulate the long head of biceps.

However, active mobility is maintained below the 90° of elevation up to the 6
th week from surgery when the protection phase is completed.

In case of sportive patients, the rehabilitative programme will be more aggressive and accelerated, aiming at recovering the full range of motion within 6 or 8 weeks after surgery (if the shoulder is not immediately immobilised, it is likely the risk of having shoulder rigidity with a deficit in extra-rotation).

The return to sports (in physical activities involving contact or throw), will take 6 month of rehabilitation after the surgical intervention.
