Answer

Physical Therapy

The goal of this phase is to maintain a high level of training and prevent reoccurrence. Emphasis is placed on longer and more intense workouts, proper arthrokinematics of the shoulder, and analysis and modification of techniques and mechanics that may reexacerbate symptoms. Make refinements in intensity and coordination.
