Shoulder Injury Treatment
If shoulder impingement pain does not go away with nonsurgical treatment, your doctor may recommend decompression surgery to remove bone tissue and increase the subacromial space.
Open repair, arthroscopic repair, and mini-open repair are the three surgical options used to repair rotator cuff tears.
These exercises for moderate to severe frozen shoulder may require physical assistance in order to prevent pain and achieve full range of motion.
These common shoulder exercises are often used as a first-line treatment for frozen shoulder
After several weeks of movement restrictions, patients who have had shoulder dislocation surgery will begin to do exercises to restore range of motion to the shoulder. Full shoulder strength can take up to a year to be restored.
After shoulder dislocation surgery, patients will need to address pain management and sleep positions to make the recovery process more comfortable. In addition, infection is a possible post-surgical complication, so patients should be aware of the signs.
Clavicle fractures typically take between 6 to 12 weeks to heal. During the recovery process patients will perform rehabilitation exercises and use a sling for immobilization.
Full recovery from rotator cuff surgery can take up to 12 months.
Rotator cuff surgery complications include damage to adjacent nerves and blood vessels, infection in the shoulder, stroke, heart attack, pneumonia, and blood clots.
