Best Pillow For Shoulder Surgery

Category: shoulder surgery 👁 521 👍 37 ★★★★☆4.6

To maximize your comfort and protect your shoulder while it is immobilized, look over at your surgical arm when you are lying down and check to see if you can see your elbow. If not, have someone place a few pillows underneath the back of your arm, between your arm and the bed or recliner.

ϻis it true, what is the ideal sleep support for post rotator cuff surgery?

Avoid sleeping flat on your back. Bolstering yourself up in your bed with several pillows or with a 45 degree wedge that you can purchase at a medical supply store will help you rest. Often, patients have to sleep with an incline for 4 to 6 weeks after surgery.

Either way, how long should you sleep in a recliner after shoulder surgery? If you can, sleep in a recliner, or reclined position up to a couple weeks after your surgery. If you don't have a recliner, you can use pillows on the couch or in bed. You can even purchase a 45 degree wedge online or at your nearest medical supply store.

Plus, how do you arrange pillows for shoulder pain?

Why is shoulder surgery so painful?

The other major reason patients have pain after rotator cuff surgery is due to stiffness of that shoulder. It is common after rotator cuff surgery to have some stiffness due to the fact that the operation caused the arm to be held without motion for some time.
