Abstract

Background and Purpose: The purpose of this retrospective case report is to describe functional outcomes for pain, range of motion (ROM), strength, motor control, and functional mobility of a 39-year-old Caucasian male patient following a left shoulder arthroscopy with anterior capsulorrhaphy and a bony Bankart repair after 10 weeks of physical therapy.

Case Description: The patient was a 39-year-old Caucasian male referred to physical therapy status post left shoulder surgery due to recurrent anterior instability and a Bankart lesion of the left shoulder following a skiing accident. The patient was treated in outpatient physical therapy setting for left shoulder pain, decreased range of motion (ROM), decreased strength, poor posture.

Outcomes: By the end of the 20 visits, the patient only met one out of four long-term goals relating to pain management and partially met the remaining three goals regarding improving functional mobility, ROM, and strength.

Discussion: It’s important that the patients’ expectations of their postoperative level of activity are considered and managed properly prior to initiating a postoperative rehabilitation program. Further research examining postoperative outcomes for ROM following shoulder capsulorrhaphy and a bony Bankart repair is needed to establish physical therapy goals in a realistic and attainable timeframe.
