SymFit® Healthy Shoulder Program
Post-surgical Protocols


The SymFit® Healthy Fitness System is the ideal post-surgical rehabilitation program as it is completely neutral spine based. So, when the surgical site is healing and you load tolerance at the joint is limited we can lay down the foundation for neutral spine alignment.  We can modify load challenges around any post-surgical protocol and we follow a conservative post-operative protocol when not provided by the physician.  The following protocols are based on general soft tissue guidelines.  

Your surgeon will likely have his or her own post-surgical protocol which we would follow.
