The ream and run and Navy Seal Training

One of my favorite shoulder surgery colleagues is fond of pointing that one of his patients had the opportunity to compare first hand the rehabilitation after a ream and run to navy seal training, finding that the ream and run rehabilitation was tougher.

While it is true that the recovery from the ream and run can be long and difficult in some cases (see this link), this is often not the case. 

For example, today we saw this man 6 weeks out from his procedure. Here are his current x-rays

and here is his motion.

This is an unusually fast recovery, representing the opposite extreme from the "Navy Seal" experience.
