Re: Getting back to Sports after shoulder surgery?

Hi Hpone.

Having read almost every shoulder (rotator cuff and labrum) tear post on these forums, the consensus seems to be that it takes at least 6 months, but more likely 9-12 months to return to full strength. I would have thought you should be able to do pull ups again, but as Steven said, it sounds like this is too soon. Follow the advice of your physio / doctor as to when you are strong enough start doing them again.

Good luck.
