Physical Therapy After Total Shoulder Replacement

Physical Therapy After Total Shoulder Replacement

Undergoing total shoulder replacement surgery is a significant step toward restoring the function of your shoulder joints. However, the journey doesn't end with the surgery itself. At Trinity Rehab, we understand the complexities of post-operative care and provide comprehensive rehabilitation services to support your recovery journey.

Physical therapy after a total shoulder replacement includes targeted exercises, manual therapy, and education on caring for your healing shoulder. Together, we’ll help you return to the activities you love.

Your First Visit: What to Expect

Your physical therapy program will be customized to your specific surgery type: total shoulder replacement or reversed total shoulder replacement. We recognize that starting physical therapy can be intimidating, and by informing you of what to expect, we aim to ease some of your uncertainty.

When your physical therapy journey begins, we’ll assess your current range of motion, strength, and pain levels. This information will help your therapist create a personalized rehabilitation plan that gradually incorporates more challenging exercises to restore strength and improve function.

Our physical therapists will create your custom in-clinic and at-home program based on your comprehensive initial evaluation.
