If you have recently undergone a shoulder slap tear lesion treatment which involves a slap tear surgery, it is crucial to undergo a thorough recovery process to ensure your return to the activities and lifestyle before the injury. Once the surgery is completed, your shoulder will be kept immobilised 3 weeks after the surgery in order to protect the biceps tendon as well as labral fixation. Your orthopaedic expert may also recommend using the electrical stimulation and cryotherapy for reducing the discomfort and swelling. During the first stage of your slap tear recovery, you may do some exercise involving your wrist and elbow but it is important to ensure that no stress is applied to the biceps tendon during the first few weeks. If your symptoms allow, your doctor may also recommend usage of submaximal pain-free deltoid isometrics in a neutral position. After 3 weeks, if you are able to tolerate, your doctor may discontinue usage of the slings to support your shoulders. You may also start doing active-assisted external rotation but that should be limited to 30-degree at the most till 6 weeks. It is important to restore the rotator cuff strength at this stage which can be done either through the use of external rotation isometrics and submaximal internal rotation. In the third stage of the slap tear recovery which generally begins 2 months after the surgery, you may be able to take part in AAROM and other external rotation movements and gradually gain back your lost strength and vigour within 14 weeks after the surgery.
