Biceps Tenodesis Rehab Protocol

Keys to a Successful Outcome

  • Full shoulder active range of motion can begin as early as deemed appropriate by the therapist and should be included in the general therapy program.

  • Most failures occur from excessive load placed on the tenodesis repair site. Do not lift too much, too early

  • The repair site is relatively superficial in the front of the shoulder, and ice is quite effective at decreasing pain and swelling after surgery and activity.


* to be worn day and night

** All exercises and activities to remain non-provocative and low to medium velocity

*** Progress gradually into provocative exercises by beginning with low velocity, known movement patterns
