Rotator Cuff Protocol
You may hear surgeons and physiotherapists talking about rehabilitation protocols and the importance of them.
Rotator cuff protocol - buy into it its not cheap!I have attached an example of a protocol under the heading rotator cuff strengthening protocol and as you will see it is fairly comprehensive.
This is just about the minimum that you should expect to see from your surgeon. I must emphasise the point that you should see this proposed plan and have an opportunity to discuss it before any potential operation.
Why this is so important is because one of the major reasons for poor outcomes from surgery for torn rotator cuff tendons is non adherence to a rotator cuff strengthening protocol.
You are going to have to live and work through your own protocol and it is vital for your recovery. Knowing what is likely to be involved in advance just makes the whole process easier.
If I can help you with only one thing I truly hope it is this. I messed up my rehab first time round, it cost me an operation, a lot of money and a number of painful, wasted years. I don't want anyone else having to go through that and that is why I am writing this.
Pain as we all know is subjective and therefore different for every individual. Similarly, money may not be that important to a millionaire; but at an average of $12,500.00 for surgery and rehab this is an expensive procedure. Get it right first time.
Another thing to consider very carefully is what if your medical team do not have a rotator cuff protocol for you to discuss. Or they are reluctant to spend time discussing it with you.
This is your pain and discomfort after all and you may well be paying for the treatment. If you are not being fully informed then the question you should be asking is "is this the team for me?"
Rotator cuff protocol - what to expect
A specifically designed protocol developed for you is the least you can expect.
Now it may be that you are generally healthy, have a small rotator cuff tear and are undergoing a routine arthroscopic repair.
If you suffer with other medical problems however they must be factored in and necessary adjustments made.
It must start at day one and run through to what is the final goal of a complete, successful pain free repair with fully restored strength and range of motion.
