When is it okay for me to exercise after a shoulder arthroscopy procedure?
You may resume exercise for your lower body (i.e. walking, running, elliptical, etc.) as soon as you would like following your shoulder surgery; however, you must wait 6-10 weeks after your shoulder surgery before you can start working out your upper body again. Your physical therapy program begins a week after surgery and will progress under Dr. Snibbe and your therapist recommendations. Once you have adequately rehabbed your shoulder, sometimes therapy is continued for sports-specific training.
