Rehabilitation After Shoulder Surgery

After receiving shoulder surgery, rehabilitation is often the next step in the recovery process. Rehabilitation or physical therapy can help improve your mobility, strengthen muscles in the shoulder, and decrease shoulder pain. Making an appointment for UES Torn Labrum Treatment with Llin Physical Therapy can prevent post-op complications such as frozen shoulder or contractures. There are a variety of shoulder surgeries that may require shoulder rehabilitation. The most common shoulder surgeries are:


  • Rotator cuff repair

  • Labrum repair

  • Clavicle fracture reduction

  • Biceps tendon repair

  • Subacromial decompression


Depending on which shoulder surgery you receive, there are specific treatments that you will receive from going to an UES Torn Labrum Treatment. These exercises and stretches typically start with simple motions and gradually become more difficult as you get further into your treatment. However, you will find that there are a variety of exercises used throughout all shoulder rehabilitation programs. These exercises include:


  • Passive Shoulder Range of Motion Exercises

  • Active Range of Motion Exercises

  • Overhead Throwing and Reaching Exercises

  • Scapular Stabilization Exercises


Many physical therapists will provide their patients with additional exercises to do at home to help with the recovery process. Doctors typically recommend that patients exercise their shoulders for 10 to 15 minutes about 2 or 3 times a day. These exercises will help ensure that your shoulder will return to optimal function levels. However, it is essential to use pain as your guide. If you are experiencing pain while completing these exercises independently, you may be doing too much too soon. If this is the case, you should let a doctor know. Doing too much too soon can cause a delay in your recovery process.  


These exercises must be incorporated into daily life as quickly as possible. Any delays in starting an UES Torn Labrum Treatment program can cause muscle stiffness and weakness. This delay in recovery can be painful and cause a great deal of discomfort.


If you have an upcoming surgery planned, or you want to begin your post-surgery recovery process, start looking into UES Torn Labrum Treatment programs. Llin Physical Therapy offers various post-surgery treatments that are guaranteed to get your shoulder back to its optimal function. 

What are Common Ways to Injure your Rotator Cuff?


The rotator cuff can be referred to as a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint. This rotator cuff keeps the head or the top of the upper arm bone firmly in place in the socket of your shoulder. An injury to the rotator cuff can cause an obscure ache in an individual’s shoulder; the pain can intensify by the use of the arm away from the body. At Llin Physical Therapy, we provide UES Torn Labrum Treatment to aid our patients to make a full recovery. 


Rotator Cuff Injury

Rotator cuff injuries are common and the chance of obtaining this injury increases with age. The pain that is related to a rotator cuff injury may include the following symptoms:


  • Dull or irritable aches/pains in your shoulder. 

  • Disturbance in sleep.

  • Difficulty in performing overhead motions, such as combing your hair or reaching behind your neck. 

  • Weakness in the arm region.




This injury may be the result of an intense injury to the shoulder along with constantly moving your arms above the head. The repetitive activity of lifting your arm over your head and away from your body or lifting heavy items over a long period of time may wear and tear the rotator cuff tendon. Without proper treatment, rotator cuff injuries may result in permanent loss of motion and may lead to progressive degeneration of the shoulder area. 


UES Torn Labrum Treatment


Many patients can manage their symptoms of rotator cuff injury with physical therapy. Many doctors recommend this form of rehabilitation to improve flexibility and strengthen the muscles surrounding the injured shoulder area. Practicing daily shoulder exercises can help prevent future injuries to the rotator cuff.

This injury may occur earlier in a patient’s life when their occupations require repeatedly performing overhead motions (i.e. carpenters and painters). There are many factors that can increase your probability of injuring your rotator cuff. These risk factors include: 


  • Age: Rotator cuff injuries are most common in individuals over the age of 60. 

  • Construction Jobs: Occupations such as house painting or carpentry tend to require repetitive overhead arm motions that can damage the rotator cuff over a long period of time. 

  • Family History: There is a possibility of a genetic component being inherited as they appear to occur more frequently in certain families.
