    Postoperative Rehabilitation of Shoulder Pathologies helps rehabilitation professionals and physicians provide effective postoperative rehabilitation for various shoulder pathologies. The e-book explores 14 surgical interventions and provides a comprehensive rehabilitation protocol for each from postsurgery rest through return to play:
    • Large and massive rotator cuff repair (open or arthroscopic)
    • Small and medium rotator cuff repair (open or arthroscopic)
    • Partial-thickness rotator cuff repair
    • Latissimus dorsi transfer for massive irreparable rotator cuff tear
    • Total shoulder arthroplasty
    • Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty
    • Proximal humeral fracture
    • Surgery for anterior shoulder instability
    • Surgery for posterior shoulder instability
    • Surgery for multidirectional shoulder instability
    • SLAP repair
    • Postoperative capsular release for frozen shoulder
    • Acromioplasty
    • AC reconstruction
    After outlining the goals and guidelines for each protocol, the text presents all of the exercises, including instructions, pictures, video clips, and recommended sets and reps for each rehabilitation protocol. More than 50 exercises are clearly depicted with photos and can be easily printed for patients to take home and reference while practicing their exercises. In addition, approximately 35 video clips are included in the e-book that visually demonstrate the proper way to perform each exercise. You can access this easy-to-use reference on an iPad or handheld reader while you work with clients so you can play the videos as you explain the technique. In addition, all videos are listed on a reference page so they are even easier to find in the middle of a session.

    This e-book is also available with an online test that can be completed for continuing education credit!
    The test consists of 50 questions, and at the completion you may print out a certificate for CEUs. For more information, view the Postoperative Rehabilitation of Shoulder Pathologies eBook with CEU Test package by clicking on the link under "Related Products" in the right column.
