Abstract

AN INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS SUSTAINED A SHOULDER INJURY WILL ENCOUNTER NUMEROUS PROFESSIONALS THROUGHOUT THE RECOVERY PROCESS. TO OPTIMIZE OUTCOMES, THESE PROFESSIONALS NEED TO HAVE A FUNDAMENTAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLETE RECOVERY PROCESS OF COMMON SHOULDER PATHOLOGIES, RANGING FROM INITIAL INJURY MECHANISMS, SURGICAL CONSIDERATIONS, AND POSTOPERATIVE/REHABILITATION MANAGEMENT TO CONSIDERATIONS OF POSTREHABILITATION DESIGN. ALL PROFESSIONALS INVOLVED WILL GREATLY BENEFIT FROM BEING AWARE OF EACH OTHER'S PRIMARY ROLES AND LIMITATIONS. THIS ARTICLE AIMS TO LINK THE ENTIRE SPECTRUM OF RECOVERY FROM COMMON SHOULDER PATHOLOGIES, FROM INJURY, TO POSTREHABILITATION DESIGN.
