Shoulder Post-operative Care
Best care, advice and support post surgery
Control of the shoulder joint is incredibly complex. Our upright posture means that we need a stable spine and paraspinal muscles from which the shoulder blade is slung on the chest wall. The shoulder joint itself is a ball and socket joint which again is under separate muscle control with a very small shallow socket and a large ball. This joint has more range of motion than any other joint in the body. Problems can arise from a break in control at any level. Differentiating issues with joint stiffness, joint ‘looseness’, core strength, scapular stability and function of the rotator cuff etc is challenging.
