Whether it's an arthroscopy to clean out the joint, a reconstruction to restore movement and function to the shoulder, or a complete replacement when the joint is too far gone, shoulder surgery is often an effective long-term option for those with chronic shoulder issues. Recovering from a shoulder operation often requires rest, careful rehab and very specific activity, and deviating from this can set you back. One of the best things to do here is wear a shoulder surgery brace.
By keeping the joint supported and stabilised while you recover, you can ensure that you've got the best chances of coming good in the shoulder post-op.
