The American Society of Shoulder and Elbow Therapists guidelines for rehabilitation of the shoulder following arthroscopic surgery are based on the principle of gradually applying stress through an appropriate integration of range of motion, strengthening, and shoulder girdle stabilization exercises during rehabilitation and daily activities. The ultimate goal is a return to athletic activities or demanding work activities 4-6 months after surgery. Similar strategies are appropriate for virtually any joint surgery, especially joint replacements.
