Shoulder function two years after ream and run: persistence, pool, patience

I'm always grateful to patients for keeping in touch and sharing the stories of their recovery after a ream and run.

Here's a most enjoyable youtube two years after a ream and run on the left shoulder.

This is the same patient whose x-rays and story are shown on a previous blog.

Thanks Mr.SS for sending!

Four things:
(1) Not everyone had the severe degree of anatomical distortion before surgery as was present in this case
(2) Not everyone puts forth the effort in rehab that this man did
(3) Not everyone achieves this level of function after a ream and run
(4) These activities are substantially beyond what is recommended for a conventional total shoulder
