ChiroUp’s earlier blog introduced a new test for the rotator cuff called the DIME test. The most common follow-up questions pertained to the rehab of a shoulder after a diagnosed rotator cuff tear.  Successful rehabilitation of shoulder tendinopathy requires three concepts.

  1. Mirror rehab
  2. Create scapular stability
  3. Increase the capacity of the shoulder girdle musculature.

Check out this week’s video blog to learn how to incorporate these concepts in your practice.

Now it’s time to empower your patients to participate in their recovery

ChiroUp subscribers can quickly build a customized report for Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy (and 100 other conditions). These reports will send your patients home with video demonstrations of their (customized) prescribed exercises & ADLs.
