Replacement of the ends of the bones of the shoulder with a prosthetic or artificial shoulder. It is performed on the shoulder when all other medical interventions no longer provide pain relief. It is usually performed on patients with; osteoarthritis, rhematoid arthritis, severe shoulder fracture, osteonecrosis of the shoulder, and rotator cuff tears.
The Physical Therapists at Apple Physical Therapy will design a personalized treatment plan specific to you and your injury that will initially include range of motion exercises of the shoulder, elbow and hand and manual therapy techniques such as passive range of motion and stretching. As your range of motion improves and your shoulder continues to heal, we will incorporate strengthening exercises focused on the muscles that surround your shoulder, including your shoulder blade, chest and arm to return you to normal daily activity.
