When can I return to work after a shoulder reconstruction?

Most patients usually return to work within 6 weeks after this procedure.

Driving and other activities that don't put your shoulder under strain may be resumed after 6 weeks when you regain your full movement range. Your doctor will let you know if you can return to work at this time as well, depending on your situation and how much physical activity is involved in your work. Physical therapy may also start at this point.
