Procedure: Postoperative early passive motion
Shoulder exercises starting on the first postoperative day
No Intervention: Immobilization
Immobilization with sling during a month. Pendulum exercises starting on the fourth postoperative week. The patients are instructed to commence passive range-of-motion exercises in the plane of the scapula with the assistance with the contralateral limb. Active motion exercises.
Sling for 4 weeks
- MRI [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
- ASES (American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Subjective Shoulder Scale) [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6 months ]The ASES is 100-point standardized shoulder-assessment self-report form, 50 points of which are derived from patient self-report of pain on a visual analog scale and 50 points of which are computed from a formula using the cumulative score of 10 activities of daily living derived using a four-point ordinal scale.
- Range of Motion [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6 months ]
- VAS of pain [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6 months ]visual analogue scale of pain
- WORC [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6 months ]The Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index (WORC) is a self-report questionnaire developed specifically to evaluate disability in persons with pathology of the rotator cuff of the shoulder.
