The aim of the study is to investigate the effect and the impact of performing virtual reality intervention on upper extremity function in patients with post-operative rotator cuff repair. The main question that it aims to answer is:
Does the application of virtual reality intervention improves upper extremity function in patients with post-operative rotator cuff repair.
Participants will be randomized into 2 groups: the control group receiving conventional physical therapy intervention and the experimental group receiving the virtual reality intervention.
Older than 18 years old and younger than 70 years old, and referred by the Adult Orthopedic Department with arthroscopic RC repair of a non-retracted isolated full-thickness supraspinatus tear with maximum 5 days post operation.
Poor response to initial non-operative treatment.
Large-sized RC tears (3-5 cm),
Massive or irreparable RC tears,
Anteroinferior labral (Bankart) or superior labrum anterior to posterior lesions,
Severe glenohumeral osteoarthritis,
Adhesive capsulitis, or
Previous surgery on the affected shoulder
Re-tears of the RC.
Indication for revision RCR
Severe neurological deficits
Infection in the affected shoulder
Blindness and/or illiteracy
