Shoulder Surgery Types & Steps to Recovery
Depending on your specific shoulder condition, your orthopedic surgeon will select the shoulder surgery type that’s best for you and your healing. The most common shoulder surgeries include rotator cuff repair, arthroscopy, and joint replacement. In addition to giving your surgeon the ability to look inside your shoulder joint, arthroscopy is used to make any needed repairs.
Open, mini-open, and minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures are all shoulder surgery types. Following your procedure, you will wear a shoulder surgery sling to avoid movement as your shoulder heals. Physical therapy and shoulder surgery rehab will help you get back function, movement, and strength in your arm.
Before you know it, you’ll be returning to sports, activities, and an active lifestyle. Protect your shoulder and avoid future injuries by:
- Properly lifting heavy objects
- Using good posture
- Doing exercises to make your shoulder muscle strong
- Carrying heavy items close to your body
