INTRODUCTION: Little objective evidence is available to guide rehabilitation protocols in regard to the sling weaning process following arthroscopy surgery of the shoulder. The purpose of this study was to establish an objective, criterion based protocol for accelerated sling weaning following shoulder arthroscopy.METHODS: 82 active duty service members (ADSM) underwent elective shoulder arthroscopic surgery by three orthopaedic staff surgeons. One physical therapist progressed patients through the criterion based sling weaning progression (SWEAP) protocol for each surgery and documented pain levels, sleep habits, and decrease in sling use. Preoperative and six month postoperative Quick Disability of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (qDASH) and Shoulder Pain and Air Jordan Uk Disability Index (SPADI) scores were obtained. The ability to perform an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) was recorded at six months postoperative.RESULTS: cheap Air Jordans Uk Patients completed sling weaning at an overall air Jordans Uk mean of 16.6 ± 5.0 days with continued use in unprotected military settings only beyond this timeframe. As patients steadily progressed out of the sling for 1 hour, 2-3 hours, and half-day periods, average pain scores decreased during these time periods at 5.0±1.2, 3.7±1.2, and 2.1±1.3 (0-10 pain scale), respectively. Patients obtained 6-7 hours of sleep or normal sleep habits at an average of 10.9±4.4 days postoperative. Overall, preoperative qDASH and SPADI scores improved from 39.8±13.0 to 2.4±2.0 and 46.4±16.1 to 3.3±3.2, respectively, at 6 months follow up. All 82 patients were able to return to deployable status. 30 (36.6%) patients required formal restrictions for the push-up portion of the APFT at six months postoperative. 7 of these 30 patients required running restrictions.CONCLUSIONS: Early improvement in quality of life indicators can be obtained in the initial postoperative period with a progressive, criterion based SWEAP jordan Shoes Uk protocol. Patients demonstrated favorable outcomes with return to occupational and physical fitness activities. This study will guide orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists to enhance the sling weaning process during rehabilitation protocols and improve preoperative counseling sessions for accurate postoperative expectations.STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective Case Series; Level of evidence 4.KEYWORDS: Shoulder arthroscopy; shoulder rehabilitation; sling weaning
