CEU Course Description
Rotator cuff pathology is a common cause of shoulder pain, weakness, limitations to daily activity, and time off from work. The goal of this CEU course is to provide an overview of the rotator cuff anatomy, classification, repair technique, basic science of tendon healing, and the current available evidence on the postoperative rehabilitation protocol after surgical repair. We will discuss immobilization compared to early range of motion, continuous passive range of motion, the use of cryotherapy and aquatic rehabilitation. Furthermore, this course will also discuss and illustrate self-directed exercises and different phases of physical therapy based on the available scientific rationale along with the recommendations and restrictions associated with each phase of rehabilitation. Finally, we will investigate the different aspects and guidelines referring to return to sport. The reading materials for this course include articles from the International Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
