PT at Home for SAD

In order to optimize the rehabilitation process for SAD recovery. Your PT will follow your MD’s recovery protocol. Proper postural awareness will also be of extreme importance to your recovery. Slouching and forward rounding of the shoulders needs to be avoided as this greatly affects the position of the shoulder joint and can lead to further impinging of the bursa and rotator cuff tendons. 

Can PT Avoid SAD Procedures?

Shoulder impingement can often be resolved through physical therapy without the need for surgical intervention. If you require surgery, upon your initial evaluation at Elite Physical therapy, your physical therapist will instruct you on your physicians protocol for recovery. 

Following your evaluation, your physical therapy team will develop and guide you through an individualized exercise program.

The primary joint of the shoulder is a ball and socket joint known as the glenohumeral joint. The Acromio-clavicular Joint (ACJ) is a small joint formed between the summit of the shoulder blade (acromion) and the collar-bone (clavicle).
