Anterior Labral (Bankart) Repair Rehab Protocol
Keys to a Successful Outcome
Since capsulolabral repair is performed with the arm in neutral rotation, any external rotation places stress on the repair. Precaution with external rotation should be taken during early rehabilitation.
No anterior glides until 8 weeks post-op
Ultimately, there may be a loss of internal rotation compared to the other shoulder, but the motion is usually adequate for most activities.
