Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff surgery is a surgical technique used to repair tears or damage to the rotator cuff tendons in the shoulder. The surgery involves reattaching the tendon to the bone using sutures or anchors. Physical Therapy rehab is a crucial part of the recovery process which will aid in reducing pain and inflammation, improving range of motion, and strengthening the muscles and tendons in the shoulder. OrthoRehab’s expert Physical Therapists can help you recover and regain function in your shoulder.

Your treatment plan may include:

  • Guided and Measured Exercises are an important part of rehab following rotator cuff surgery. Your therapist will guide you through exercises designed to improve range of motion, strength, and flexibility in the shoulder. These may include gentle stretching, isometric exercises, and resistance exercises using weights or bands.
  • Manual therapy may also be used to help alleviate pain and improve mobility in the shoulder joint. Your therapist may use techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, and stretching to help you regain function in your shoulder.
  • Education is an important part of rehabilitation following rotator cuff surgery. Your therapist will help you understand the recovery process, teach you strategies to prevent future injury, and instruct you on how to modify your daily activities to avoid aggravating your shoulder.

Rehabilitation following rotator cuff surgery can help you regain function in your shoulder, reduce pain, and improve your quality of life. By working with a physical therapist, you can improve your range of motion, strength, and flexibility, allowing you to perform daily activities with ease. OrthoRehab’s Physical Therapists will work closely with your Orthopedic provider to ensure your progress meets and exceeds their expectations in the surgical healing process.
