PMID:  14560550     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Rehabilitation of the dysfunction that is associated with rotator cuff tendinopathy should be based on the evidence known about the pathoetiology of the tendinopathy, what is known about the extent of the local anatomic injury, the local and distant physiological and biomechanical alterations, and on the knowledge developed regarding progressive loading of the injured or altered structures. Prehabilitation, or prospective exercises to minimize future rotator cuff loading stresses, should be included at the end of rehabilitation as part of the return to function.
