Shoulder Injury - What To Expect From Arthroscopic Surgery?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Shoulder Injury - What To Expect From Arthroscopic Surgery?

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, wherein a viewing instrument is inserted into an area through a small incision in the skin and further work (repair or removal of foreign body) is carried out. With advancements in medical technology, more and more surgeries are being done arthroscopically. Ligament tears are one such instance, where almost all ligament tears are repaired through arthroscopy.
The most common shoulder ligament injury is the rotator cuff, which helps in moving the arm around the shoulder. The tear could be small, medium or large; it could also be partial or complete.

The rotator cuff tendon is inserted into the shoulder in the upper arm and if it gets torn, due to weakness or injury, the movement can be limited. This is repaired arthroscopically due to the following advantages:

  1. Minimal or no hospitalisation
  2. Minimal recovery time
  3. Minimally invasive
  4. Minimally painful procedure

Indications:
Rotator cuff tears are very common in, especially in athletes (hockey, wrestlers, football, etc.) and labour workers who are used to repetitive overhead activities. However, before going for a surgery, the following should be considered:

  1. Nonsurgical methods including physical and rehab therapy have not provided sufficient relief
  2. The patient’s overall health status should be good to sustain the surgery and recovery
  3. Financial and overall health risks are explained and understood

What to expect during surgery?:

  1. A presurgical evaluation is done to ensure that the tear can be treated arthroscopically
  2. X-rays and MRI may be required to confirm the diagnosis
  3. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia, and the procedure is done in a seated position
  4. General anaesthesia can be used though if the patient and the doctor chose to
  5. Depending on where the injury is, incisions are planned to ensure good access to the rotator cuff
  6. If there are foreign bodies like bone spurs, they are removed or trimmed
  7. The procedure usually takes about 2 to 3 hours, and the repair is carried out
  8. Though the complete recovery may take longer, initial recovery with relief of pain and stiffness happens quite soon after the procedure
  9. The incisions are closed using absorbable sutures
  10. The patient is given a sling for immediate postop use

Recovery:
The patient can go home after a couple of hours when the anaesthetic effect has worn off, driving is not possible though.

  1. Initial overuse of the shoulder must be prevented
  2. Pain, infection, and swelling control immediately postop is important
  3. Can take up to 6 months for complete recovery depending on the size of the tear
  4. Exercise regimen and physical therapy instructions should be strictly followed

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, because of hormonal imbalance only you are suffering from these problems. Homoeopathy is the permanent solution for this. Is your periods regular or not? now are you taking any medicines for this?

How to Reduce Knee Pain

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
How to Reduce Knee Pain
Managing knee pain.

1. Heat or cold therapy.
Try using hot packs or ice packs on the knee where it hurts for 10 to 15 minutes few times a day as tolerated. Usually ice therapy helps control inflammation and reduces pain immediately.

2. Stretching and strengthening exercises
Hamstring stretch: lay on your back and tie a strap to the ankle. Now lift leg straight up till you feel stretch behind your knee and thigh.
Hold 15 seconds. Repeat 3 times each side.

Quadriceps stretch: stand on one leg and holding onto a chair for support. Now using your hand bend the knee as much possible. Keep leg straight and you will feel a stretch in front of your thigh. Hold for 15 seconds. Repeat 3 times each side.

Quad sets: sit with your legs straight. Tighten knee and hold for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times on both sides. You can also put a folded towel under the knee.

Straight leg raise: lay on your back. Lift one leg straight up and lower slowly. Repeat 10 times on both sides.

Sitting leg raises: sit up straight in a chair. Straighten one leg and hold 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times each side.

3. Walking and other activities.
Start slow and keep at it. Walking can ease joint pain, strengthen leg muscles, improve posture, and improve flexibility. It's also good for your heart.
The exercises that are easy on the knees include biking, swimming, and water aerobics. Water exercise takes weight off painful joints. Being active may also help you lose weight, which takes pressure off joints.

How much exercise?
Thirty minutes a day is a good goal. Start small, such as 10 minutes every alternate day. If you don't have pain, exercise more to reach 30 minutes goal.

When you start to exercise, you may feel mild soreness in muscle and thats normal. Check with your doctor if you want to try over-the-counter pain relievers to help the soreness. Ice can also help. Don't ignore pain in your joints, though. Contact your doctor if you have any. Physiotherapy can help and treatments such as ultrasound therapy, interferential therapy, tens, etc are combined with specific exercises to improve knee flexibility and strength.

Good luck!

Hello- looking and your complaints and your normal report status, it might be possible that this pain is due to gaseous distension in your stomach (which resides in between both the ribs). >try this treatment- 1) arogyawardhini vati 1 tab twice daily. 2) vasaguluchyadi kashaya 2 tsp twice daily. Continue these medication for fifteen days and let me know your status after that.
