Rotator Cuff Repair - Post Operative Rehabilitation

After your rotator cuff repair you will be visited by a physiotherapist in hospital. You will be instructed on a passive range of movement programme to regain mobility in your shoulder, whilst continuing to protect the rotator cuff / tendon repair, for six weeks. You will also be shown how to keep your hand and elbow moving as well as how to manage your sling.

The passive range of movement programme is designed to regain some movement about the shoulder whilst protecting the rotator cuff repair and consists of pendulum movements, passive shoulder flexion and external rotation exercises if appropriate.
