A recently published study outlines an alternative multimodal pain management pathway that eliminates the need for opioids in patients undergoing elective reverse and anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty.
Shoulder exercises can be useful in the treatment of many of the common causes of shoulder pain. These exercises are also part of the usual rehabilitation from most any shoulder surgery. Shoulder exercises should be performed under the direction of a physician to ensure the proper muscles are being targeted for your condition.
The aim of this clinical laboratory study was to compare scapular and rotator cuff muscle activation between standard and modified exercises.
