- •Rehabilitation reduce disability and improve muscle strength.
- •Time of injury, age and muscle strength improvement influence return to work/study.
- •Severity of the injury, type of work and dominant side involvement does not influence return to work/ study.
- •High levels of satisfaction were achieved with an interdisciplinary approach patient-centered.
