In brief: Shoulder ligaments

Good rehabilitation of this surgery is critical to the outcome.
One undergoes graded increase in motion and strength while the repair heals. The tricky part is to progress wth both without damaging the repair. Thus one needs to be in the hands of an experienced shoulder physiotherapist. Ask your surgeon to make the referral

In brief: Ask your ortho doc

If you had recent surgery it's best to discuss with your orthopedic surgeon as they often prefer to work with specific physical therapists that are familiar with their precautions/preferences etc.
