Tips For Recovering From Rotator Cuff Surgery
“Physician, Heal Thyself” takes on a whole new meaning now. Mark personally had rotator cuff surgery and now has new insight and appreciation for what his patients go through. Mark wants to share some helpful do’s and don’ts that will help you as your recover including:
How the first six weeks are the most critical – take your time and follow your physician’s advice.
Learn the different types of range of motion which include:
- Passive range of motion means someone is moving your joint FOR YOU – without your assistance. You offer no help.
- Active assist range of motion means using a pulley or tool that helps you move the joint.
- Active range of motion means you can move it on your own without assistance.
Rotator cuff surgery and injuries can be very complicated. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our clinic. Mark is happy to help you!
