This presentation will discuss rehabilitation following rotator cuff repair with special emphasis on why one rehab program doesn't fill all patients. There are many variables regarding rotator cuff repairs that need to be considered, including the size of the tear, the tissue quality, the type of surgery performed, and patient variables. As a result, physical therapists need multiple rehab programs that adjust to their patients needs based on these variables.
