Hello doctor,

After my right shoulder surgery, do I need a physiotherapist? What would happen if I do not consult a physiotherapist?

#

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I recommend you consult a physiotherapist for rehabilitation post surgery as it is very important that you gain strength and mobility. Otherwise, there would be some imbalance remaining within the muscle group and may give rise to minor nagging issues after a while.

So, it is just a matter of few weeks of strengthening that keeps you away from many issues that might arise afterward. By saying this, I am not frightening you that you will definitely have, but there could be a possibility which may be avoided completely.

Hope this is helpful for you.
