Total Shoulder Replacement

What to expect at your physical therapy visits

We will start with a post-surgical evaluation that includes checking your wound to ensure no infection has formed. Your therapist will also ask a series of questions to determine your current status and your individual goals.

Our physical therapists are movement experts and will help improve your quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed exercises. We use the information gathered in the initial evaluation to develop a comprehensive program that includes targeted manual techniques, mobility work, strengthening, and any appropriate pain relief technique.

Rehabilitation should start immediately following surgery to ensure the fastest recovery possible. Once you get your shoulders moving again, there are some exercises you can do on your own, and your physical therapist will provide clear instructions to ensure you have the best possible outcome!
