Shoulder Surgery Recovery
If you have a shoulder condition or have sustained a serious shoulder injury, you might need surgery to correct the problem and prevent further damage. Many shoulder surgeries can be performed with an arthroscope – a small camera inserted into the shoulder joint through a small incision – making them less invasive and resulting in a shorter shoulder surgery recovery period.
Common Types of Shoulder Surgery
Some of the most common types of arthroscopic shoulder surgery we help our patients recover from are associated with:
- SLAP Repair
- Frozen Shoulder
- Shoulder Dislocation
- Impingement Syndrome
Other shoulder surgeries focus on the repair of joints, muscles, and tendons, such as the:
- Rotator Cuff
- Biceps Tendon
- Acromioclavicular Joint
The most major form of shoulder surgery, however, is a complete shoulder replacement.
Shoulder Surgery Recovery Planning
We often don’t realize just how much we depend upon our shoulders to complete everyday tasks. Imagine taking a shower, picking up a box, styling your hair, or driving a car with only one arm. During your shoulder surgery recovery, your affected arm may need to be immobilized in a sling to allow for proper healing – limiting your daily activities.
You could also experience a great deal of pain and swelling and need to use ice packs and strong pain medications to reduce your discomfort. Having assistance with basic tasks and someone there to help you manage your pain levels for the first few days can help a great deal in the shoulder surgery recovery process.
