Background: Research demonstrates a drastic increase in the prevalence of type-II superior labral anterior-posterior (SLAP) lesion repairs, and its surgical correction has become the favored method of treatment, because of its ability to effectively improve quality of life (QOL). A type-II SLAP lesion consists of fraying and degenerative changes to the superior labrum, in an anterior to posterior direction, with the biceps tendon detached from the glenoid. Purpose: Document the examination, evaluation, and plan of care (POC) concerning a patient that was referred to physical therapy (PT) three months following the surgical correction of a type-II SLAP lesion.
