There is not one specific rehabilitation protocol for all rotator cuff patients. The key is to have different rehabilitation programs for specific patients and types of repairs. Protocol should be based on the size of the tear, the tissue quality, the type of repair, and additional patient variables.

ProCert has awarded certification in the amount of 1 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) to this activity. CCUs are a unit of relative value of an activity based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards representing the quality of an activity. The CCU determination is a valuation applying many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. No conclusion should be drawn that CCUs correlate to time (e.g. hours).
