Re: Torn Rotator Cuff Sugery

I to had a torn rotator cuff repair and now have one in the other shoulder. Was wondering how long is long enough to wait till I get this one fixed. Do I need full ROM in first tear so I won't be so dependent on others for help with my recovery?

Allows full dexterity of the fingers and thumb, yet limits wrist flexion. Longer length for greater wrist control and increased immobilization. Latex Free.
