Shoulder surgery

The shoulder is the most mobile and least stable joint in the human body and is therefore highly susceptible to injury. Injury can occur through many different causes such as trauma (fractures and dislocations) and overuse injuries (rotator cuff tears). Some of the main problems following surgery include pain and a loss of range of movement and strength. Physiotherapy helps to overcome these problems and to speed up recovery as much as possible.

Leeds Physiotherapy offers expert physiotherapy to people who are about to or have had surgery of the shoulder. Prior to surgery we are able to offer advice on the procedure, and devise personal exercise programmes to get you in the best condition possible prior to surgery which will help your recovery. Following your operation we can start your rehabilitation as soon as possible. This will involve returning movement, strength and proprioception to their normal levels. Leeds Physiotherapy’s team of specialist physiotherapists commonly see these types of shoulder surgery:

Iqbal, Leeds

"My physio explained what had happened, gave me a clear timetable for my recovery and gave me exercises designed to get me back to work as soon as possible."

Steve, Osmondthorpe

"My wife can now walk around the house with a stick, can use the stairs and is more able to do things herself. We feel it has been a great help as I don’t think I could have coped alone."
