A combination of supervised and unsupervised individualised rehabilitation offers the patient the possibility of tailored exercise prescription, exercise supervision and correction, patient motivation, satisfaction and the early identification of potential rehabilitation problems. Patient Population 1. Post Internal surgical procedures 2. Shoulder instability rehabilitation in the TUBS and inappropriate muscle patterning groups especially in the atraumatic group. 3.
