Criteria, Timing, and Factors Associated With Return to Competitive Sport After Rotator Cuff Surgery.

Rotator cuff pathology in competitive athletes is common and may produce chronic symptoms and joint disability, impairing sports participation and leading to premature retirement. Athletes are a high-functioning patient population with unique characteristics. Decision-making for return to sport is a complex and multifactorial process.
