Exercises to improve stability after a Shoulder Labrum Tear

Physical therapy exercises may benefit 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 to help you 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 is loosening or dislocating.

Physical therapy exercises for labrum tears aim to increase the range of motion, stability, strength, and maximum flexibility in the shoulder.

This article will explain the steps involved in physical therapy for a shoulder injury.

Exercise in range of motion

After a labrum injury, you may feel your shoulder loosening and dislocating easily, and 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 is when your therapist moves your shoulder.
  • Use a shoulder pulley for exercises

You can move your shoulder throughout its full range of motion, stopping when you feel pain or instability.

Exercises for the rotator cuff

A shoulder labrum tear can affect the stability of your shoulder joint. To regain stability, you can do a rotator cuff strengthening exercise.

  • Exercises for the shoulder using isometrics
  • Strengthening the resistance band rotator wrist cuff
  • Dumbbells can be used to increase the 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, 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.
