    An injured worker who regularly lifts 40-50 lbs overhead on the job has had a moderate to massive rotator cuff tear surgically repaired. He has progressed from the PROM/Isometric phase to the AAROM/AROM/ light rotator cuff/ periscapular muscle group strengthening phase. He has regained almost full active forward elevation with minimal scapula hiking . When is it deemed appropriate to begin introducing adding resisted overhead pushing exercises i.e. shoulder presses into his rehab without over jeopardizing the repair ? Even the orthopods wrestle with this question and the literature research attempts I’ve made so far hasn’t provided an answer. What are your thoughts and recommendations ? Thanks for the thoughtful information sharing on your weekly broadcasts.
