This section of our website contains rehabilitation protocols  prepared for our upper extremity orthopaedic patients.
 
The protocols are intended to be used as guidelines during therapy, not as substitutes for the instruction provided by a certified therapist.  The videos are intended to complement the shoulder rehabilitation protocols.
 
The treatment protocols are formatted in PDF files which may be downloaded by therapists and by our patients.  The steps during each phase of rehabilitation are clearly defined in simple language so that both therapist and patient understand the goals and expectations of treatment at all times.
 
The importance of physical therapy, particularly following shoulder surgery, cannot be overstated.  We believe that a good surgical outcome requires a technically well done procedure as well as a good postoperative physical therapy program.
 
The postoperative protocols in this section have been designed for use by my patients after specific operations done by me.  The protocols may or may not be appropriate for postop patients treated elsewhere.
