This procedure involves removing a bone spur and irregularities on the underside of the acromion (the roof of the shoulder) which can be a cause of rotator cuff irritation and tearing. The torn tendon is then reattached to the …
Rotator Cuff Repair with Biceps Release/Tenodesis Brian Bjerke, MD Post-Operative Protocol Phase I – Maximum Protection (Week 0 to 6) Goals § § § §
Reduce inflammation Decrease pain Postural education PROM as instructed
Restrictions/Exercise Progression § Sling x 6 weeks - ultrasling x 4-6 weeks, larger tears may be in ultrasling x 6 weeks then regular sling for 2 additional weeks. § Ice and modalities to reduce pain and inflammation. § Cervical ROM and basic deep neck flexor activation (chin tucks). § Instruction on proper head neck and shoulder (HNS) alignment. § Active hand and wrist range of motion. § Passive biceps x 6 weeks (AAROM; no release or tenodesis). § Active shoulder retraction. § Passive range of motion (gradual progression starting at 4 weeks) -No motion x 4 weeks -Flexion 0°-90° from weeks 4-6, then full -External rotation 0°-30° weeks 4-6 then full -Avoid internal rotation (thumb up back) until 8 weeks post-op. § Encourage walks and low intensity cardiovascular exercise to promote healing. Manual Intervention § STM – global shoulder and CT junction. § Scar tissue mobilization when incisions are healed. § Graded GH mobilizations. § ST mobilizations. Phase II – Progressive Stretching and Active Motion (Weeks 6 to 8) Goals § § § § §
Discontinue sling except as instruction with large or massive tears. Postural education. Focus on posterior chain strengthening. Begin AROM. P/AAROM: - Flexion 150°+ - 30-50° ER @ 0° abduction - 45-70° ER at 70-90° abduction
Exercise Progression § Progress to full range of motion flexion and external rotation as tolerated. Use a combination of wand, pulleys, wall walks or table slides to ensure compliance. § Gradual introduction to internal rotation using shoulder extensions (stick off back). § Serratus activation; Ceiling punch (weight of arm) many initially need assistance. § Scapular strengthening – prone scapular series (rows and I’s). Emphasize scapular strengthening under 90°. § External rotation on side (no resistance). § Gentle therapist directed CR, RS and perturbations to achieve ROM goals. § Cervical ROM as needed to maintain full mobility. § DNF and proper HNS alignment with all RC/SS exercises. § Low to moderate cardiovascular work. May add elliptical but no running. Manual Intervention § STM – global shoulder and CT junction. § Scar tissue mobilization. § Graded GH mobilizations. § ST mobilizations. § Gentle CR/RS to gain ROM while respecting repaired tissue. Phase III – Strengthening Phase (Weeks 8 to 12) Goals § 90% passive ROM, 80-90% AROM by 12 weeks. Larger tears and patients with poor tissue quality will progress more slowly. § Normalize GH/ST arthrokinematics. § Activate RC/SS with isometric and isotonic progression. § Continue to emphasize posterior chain strengthening but introduce anterior shoulder loading. Exercise Progression § Passive and active program pushing for full flexion and external rotation. § Continue with stick off the back progressing to internal rotation with thumb up back and sleeper stretch. § Add resistance to ceiling punch. § Sub-maximal rotator cuff isometrics (no pain). § Advance prone series to include T’s. § Add rows with weights or bands. § Supine chest-flys providing both strength and active anterior shoulder stretch. § Supine (adding weight as tolerated) progressing to standing PNF patterns. § Seated active ER at 90/90. § Biceps and triceps PRE. § Scaption; normalize ST arthrokinematics. § 10 weeks; add quadruped or counter weight shift. Therapist directed RS and perturbations in quadruped – bilateral progressing to unilateral-tri pod position. Manual Intervention § STM and Joint mobilization to CT junction, GHJ and STJ as needed. § CR/RS to gain ROM while respecting repaired tissue. § Manual perturbations. § PNF patterns.
Phase IV – Advanced Strengthening and Plyometric Drills PRE/PSE (weeks 12-20) § Full range of motion all planes – emphasize terminal stretching with cross arm, TUB, triceps, TV, sleeper and door/pec stretch. § Begin strengthening at or above 90° with prone or standing Y’s, D2 flexion pattern and 90/90 as scapular control and ROM permit. Patient health, physical condition and goals/objectives will determine if strengthening above 90° is appropriate. § Add lat pulls to gym strengthening program; very gradual progression with pressing and overhead activity. § Continue with closed chain quadruped perturbations; add open chain as strength permits. § Progress closed kinetic chain program to include push-up progression beginning with counter, knee then – gradual progression to full as appropriate. § Initiate plyometric and rebounder drills as appropriate. RTS program (weeks 20 to 24) § Continue to progress RC and scapular strengthening program as outlined. § Advance gym strengthening program. § RTS testing for interval programs (golf, tennis etc.). Microfet testing as appropriate. § Follow-up examination with the physician (6 months) for release to full activity. Manual Intervention § STM and Joint mobilization to CT junction, GHJ and STJ as needed. § CR/RS to gain ROM while respecting repaired tissue. § Manual perturbations. § PNF patterns.
