April 11, 2022

Physical therapy exercises may be beneficial for those suffering from a shoulder labrum injury. They can help you control your shoulder pain, improve your range of motion and reduce your shoulder pain. Your physical therapist will recommend a series of exercises that will help you to heal your shoulder labrum. These exercises can be performed in a clinic with your physical therapist, or at home as part of your home exercise program. The labrum of your shoulder serves two purposes. It keeps the socket from becoming too shallow. If it is turned away, you might feel that your joint may be loosening or dislocated. Physical therapy exercises for labrum tears have the following goals: increasing your range of motion, stability, strength, and maximum flexibility in your shoulder. This article will explain the steps involved in physical therapy for a shoulder injury.

Exercise in range of motion

You may feel your shoulder loosening and dislocating easily after a labrum injury. Your range of motion might also be affected. There are a variety of exercises that can be done to increase the range of motion in your shoulders.
  • Active range of motion where your therapist moves your shoulder.
  • Use a shoulder pulley for exercises
You can move your shoulder throughout its full range of motion, stopping at the point you feel pain or instability.

Exercises for the rotator cuff

The stability of your shoulder joint can be affected by a shoulder labrum tear. To regain stability, you can do a rotator cuff strengthening exercise to strengthen your shoulder joints.
  • Exercises for the shoulder using isometrics
  • Strengthening the resistance band rotator wrist cuff
  • Dumbbells can be used to increase active range of motion, strengthen rotator cuff muscles, and improve strength
  • Weight-bearing exercises
These exercises can be performed three to four times per week, with a repetition cycle of 10-15 times. If you feel pain in your shoulder or dislocation, stop the exercise. Other exercises, such as Balance and Scapular Stability, and Shoulder Proprioception are also available. These exercises can help heal your shoulder labrum tear and allow you to continue your daily activities.
