Despite the apparent success of continuous passive motion after soft-tissue procedures or joint replacements, its effect after repair of the rotator cuff is still unknown. The purpose of this prospective, randomized outcome study was to compare the results of continuous passive motion with those of manual passive range-of-motion exercises after repair of the rotator cuff. Thirty-one patients (thirty-two rotator cuffs) were randomly assigned to one of two types of postoperative management… CONTINUE READING
