Ream and run - payback for doing the homework!

We recently treated this shoulder

With a ream and run procedure. Routinely we ask patients do do their range of motion exercises five times a day and give them a calendar to mark each exercise completion. This man came back showing his homework report (a sample page of many below): 

He also showed us his range of motion and mentioned that he was taking only occasional Tylenol for discomfort.

His 6 week films are shown below, with a stable component and early glenoid healing.

This example shows once more that the key to getting great results from a ream and run is selecting the right patient for the procedure.
