Physical Therapy

Below you will find pages with physical therapy rehabilitation protocols.

What will physical therapy be like after discharge from the hospital?

Dr. Anthony Romeo has most patients start physical therapy 2-10 days following surgery unless you are having a Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement then you would start physical therapy 6 weeks after surgery.

Outpatient Physical Therapy

  • You are responsible for setting up your outpatient physical therapy visits. You will be given a prescription that can be found in section 4 of your surgery information booklet.
  • You will go to outpatient physical therapy 2 – 3 times a week until you meet your goals.
  • Select an outpatient facility which is close to home/work and that takes your insurance. You may also want to work with a physical therapist you have worked with previously. If you do not know where to go, please contact us at 800-321-9999.
