Rotator Cuff Rehabilitation After Surgery

Shoulder surgery is rarely simple. The injury or degeneration that caused the pain or dysfunction does not usually involve just one structure. As such, North Boulder Physical Therapy requires a copy of your operative report prior to designing your recovery plan. Once we have this information, our therapists and shoulder specialists will safely and effectively guide you through rotator cuff rehabilitation.

Our goal is to protect the surgical repair at all stages of your recovery while effectively restoring your motion, strength and function. The following and more will be addressed:

  • Post op skin care
  • Scar mobility
  • Post-operative swelling and inflammation
  • Post-operative pain
  • Early motion exercises
  • Posture
  • Manual therapy
  • Home exercises
  • Return to self care and daily activities
  • Strength, endurance
  • Reaching, lifting, pushing, pulling
  • Progression for return to lifting at the gym
  • Specific exercises for return to sport or work

If you’ve had surgery, physical therapy is important for your full recovery. Contact North Boulder Physical Therapy today and let us help you achieve your goals with rotator cuff rehabilitation.
