For a reverse shoulder replacement, the metal ball is attached to your shoulder blade and the plastic socket part is attached to the stem of your upper arm bone. This procedure is performed for patients who have arthritis with massive rotator cuff tear and can’t lift their arm. The reverse shoulder replacement provides these patients pain relief and ability to lift the arm up using the deltoid muscle instead of torn an irreparable rotator cuff.
Physical therapy and a well-planned rehabilitation program is the key to getting the full range of motion and strength of your shoulder back after replacement procedures.
