    She should really focus on rehabilitation once her surgery is done. Her rehabilitation programme should cover EVERYthing she needs and has to do, from range of motion to proprioception to flexibility to resistance to cardio training, progressing through phases I to IV, where she should be at 100% again.

    If she wants to do something in the meantime, get her doing cardio - cycling (stationary bike, elliptical, stepper, pool walking, etc.). She can do lower body bodyweight exercises and plyometrics. There's heaps she can do. Think outside the box, and use common sense.

    And if she's so concerned about calories, get her to ADJUST HER CALORIC INTAKE accordingly for her new activity level - since her Maintenance will decrease due to a decrease in activity.

    the anterior dislocation of the humeral head in the glenoid fossa can indeed cause internal damage, to include torn joint capsule, torn cartilage, and various tendinous disruptions. chronic shoulder instability is terrible to live with and causes early arthritic changes. if she's had the correct evaluation by an orthopedist and needs surgery, that really is the best way. as for ANYthing related to upper body activity post-op, you really need to listen to the orthopedist and pyhsical therapist.

    Shoulder Flexion and Abduction: Sit in a chair or stand in an upright position. Now, hold or support your affected arm by placing the palm of unaffected arm below the elbow of the affected arm. Then gently move in forward direction and move your arms to and fro. This is shoulder flexion exercise for dislocated shoulder. To perform shoulder abduction, position your hands as in shoulder flexion, but move them from one side to other.

    Pendulum Swings: Lean on a table by placing the palm of the unaffected arm on its surface. Bring a small bend in the knee of the unaffected side and straighten the leg of the affected side. Now, place the affected arm over unaffected thigh and swing it gently in clockwise direction to possible extent. Repeat this for 10 times and perform anticlockwise swings.
