Answer

Other important goals include maintaining joint motion and neuromuscular re-education. Upper extremity ergometry exercises, trunk exercises, and general cardiovascular conditioning for endurance are also recommended. Therapies may be continued if necessary. Guidelines to advance are full, nonpainful range of motion when manual muscle testing of strength is 70% of the contralateral side.
