Shoulder Replacement

SHOULDER ARTHROPLASTY (Shoulder Replacement)

 

WHAT IS A TOTAL SHOULDER ARTHROPLASTY (Shoulder Replacement)?

 

A total shoulder arthroplasty is a fancy term for a complete shoulder replacement resulting from significant trauma or arthritis that has damaged the joint/ligaments surrounding the shoulder joint.

 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SHOULDER REPLACEMENTS?

 

At the moment there are two different methods of replacements, the original shoulder arthroplasty and the reverse shoulder arthroplasty. With the original shoulder arthroplasty the joint is replaced with metal hardware in normal anatomical alignment. With the reverse shoulder arthroplasty the ball and socket joint are reversed with inserted hardware that results in decreased possibility of shoulder dislocation following surgery.

 

HOW WILL PRO THERAPY TREAT MY SHOULDER REPLACEMENT?

 

Unlike shoulder ligament/labral repair surgeries, physical therapy is immediately initiated following surgery physical therapy using a strict protocol of range of motion (ROM)/strengthening exercises to prevent further weakness and adherence of shoulder musculature, hindering motion at the joint. With a skilled physical therapist, shoulder replacement treatment consists of therapeutic exercise to increase strength and ROM, manual stretching, patient education, therapeutic activities to increase ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs), and pain management. With proper patient education and adherence to the protocol following surgery most patients have a successful recovery with very little limitation.
