Shoulder Joint Replacement

Side Effects of Shoulder Joint Replacement

The side effects of shoulder joint replacement include some discomfort following the surgery that can be treated with pain medications. Some muscle stiffness and weakness will occur from the need to keep the arm in a sling for up to three months. Physical therapy helps correct these impairments. Even after recovery, there may some limits in how much weight can be lifted.
