During these sessions, they will use various techniques to help you alleviate the symptoms and manage the pain. Your therapist will use different ways to perform a treatment such as spinal manipulation, soft tissue release, trigger point therapy, gentle traction, and ultrasound therapy. They will be able to recommend which type of therapy will best treat your symptoms. They will also help you learn how to properly take care of yourself so that the condition does not return.
Shoulder Physical Therapy can often lead to Shoulder Surgery. Shoulder Surgery is used when physical therapists have tried all other treatment methods and still have not found a solution. Shoulder Surgery is usually performed by a surgeon who specializes in surgeries on the shoulder. It is sometimes combined with other surgical procedures such as arthroscopic shoulder surgery, mammoplasty, and micro-discectomy. The purpose of Shoulder Surgery is to strengthen weak muscles, restore range-of-motion, repair torn cartilage, remove bone spurs, and correct deformities caused by overexertion or injury.
Once Shoulder Surgery is performed, your physical therapist may use medication and therapy to control your pain and stiffness. Your physical therapist may use specific exercises and stretches to strengthen your range-of-motion and help to rebuild muscle strength. They will teach you how to use proper techniques for each of your hand movements as well as other activities. You will also be taught how to modify your daily home exercise program to improve your flexibility. If you have had previous surgery, your physical therapist will likely place restrictions on the activities you can perform at home.
If Shoulder Physical Therapy does not provide enough improvement in your mobility, your physical therapist will likely perform Shoulder Transplantation. This procedure is designed to give your injured shoulder immediate support to avoid pressure on the injured joint from moving. Your physical therapist will transfer your bones to a postoperative position so that they are properly anchored. After surgery, your therapist will help you adapt to your new postoperative schedule of daily activities, exercises, and resting.
If the previous treatment is not effective, your doctor may recommend Shoulder Replacement Surgery. This procedure is designed to replace a degenerative bone joint that has been affected by wear and tear. During surgery, your surgeon will rebuild your lost motion and replace your joint to its original position allowing it to function properly. During recovery, your physical therapist will help you use the newly reconstructed arm to perform your daily activities.
