Shoulder Surgery

The shoulder joint is a very complex joint. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint, meaning it allows back, forward, sideways and rotational movements. Due to this extensive range of available movement, shoulder injuries can be complex and at times may require surgery.

Some of the most common reasons for shoulder surgery include:

At The Physio Bunker, our Physio team in Birtinya and Maroochydore are excellent at rehabilitating these injuries and surgeries. We have an objective criteria that we use to ensure we don’t miss any aspect of your shoulder surgery rehab and to ensure you are moving forward as expected. We also have extra criteria for our sports patients and athletes – we make your rehab specific to your sport and ensure you can do everything you need to for your sport at a high performance level.

If you are unsure about whether you need surgery, or if you have been told you need surgery but aren’t sure, book in with one of our team so we can give you a second opinion or provide some education so you can make an informed decision.
