Abstract

joint osteoarthritis is a common degenerative condition that many aging individuals experience. Anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is an accepted surgical intervention to treat progressive conditions of the glenohumeral joint in aging individuals. The use of TSA has steadily been increasing over the years to treat degenerative joint disease in the glenohumeral joint. While TSA is an option for improving patient function when suffering from glenohumeral osteoarthritis, obesity has been found to negatively impact functional outcomes in individuals undergoing TSA. The purpose of this case report is to describe the physical therapy management and outcomes following eight weeks of traditional outpatient physical therapy therapeutic for an obese 60-year-old male after a left TSA was performed. Many individuals that attend physical therapy hope to fully recover from total shoulder arthroplasty and therapeutic interventions has shown to improve patient’s function.
