Post-Operative Management of Selected Shoulder ConditionsCourse: #2049 2 Hours Level: Intermediate
Shoulder pathology is common in the general population and some patients will require surgical intervention. The rehabilitation professional must understand the biomechanics of the shoulder complex as well as tissues implicated in specific surgical procedures in order to facilitate a successful outcome for the patient. The purpose of this presentation is to present an evidence based review of current physical therapy practice for the post-operative management of selected shoulder conditions. Milestone criteria for a safe progression through return to work/sport following surgery will be discussed.
