Rehabilitation of the shoulder is often (not always) prescribed by the doctor or surgeon after consultation on a painful shoulder.
The reasons can be multiple:
it allows regularly:
- to relieve, provided not to be brutal or inappropriate,
- to recover the flexibility of a stiff shoulder by a non-normal use of the joint, flexibility essential to consider an intervention in good conditions
- to recover the active articular amplitudes essential to the gestures of everyday life,
- to make it possible to examine precisely the symptoms of a shoulder, to make it examinable which was not it during a first examination.
- fight against sub-acromial conflict or bursitis, mainly by opening the subacromial space.
- Finally, it makes it possible to sort out between those who will benefit from medical treatment and those who will justify surgical management.
