Game Ready® Releases Guide to Shoulder Surgery Recovery

Cold and Compression Therapy Leader Publishes a Resource for Patients Hoping to Speed the Recovery Process

CONCORD, CA--(Marketwired - March 30, 2016) - Game Ready®, the leader in active compression and cold therapy technology for injury treatment and post-operative recovery, today announced it is publishing a resource detailing recovery strategies for patients after shoulder surgery. The guide, Shoulder Surgery Recovery Timeline + Tips for a Better Recovery, is available for free download at info.gameready.com/download-shoulder-surgery-timeline-tips-for-a-better-recovery.

Athletes are naturally more susceptible to shoulder injuries, but anyone can suffer a torn rotator cuff, bursitis, impingement, or other trauma that requires surgery. Range of motion in the shoulder is necessary for many daily activities, so full recovery after surgery is important. Game Ready's new guide explores essential elements of a speedy, successful recovery from shoulder surgery. This resource includes:

  • Four potential complications to recovery from shoulder surgery
  • A graphical timeline detailing three phases of the recovery process
  • Six steps, including cold therapy and active compression, to accelerate the healing process

"Recovering from shoulder surgery is a process that takes time," says Craig Grabell, President and CEO of Game Ready. "However, the timeline can be accelerated by avoiding complications, appreciating the physical limitations during each phase of the recovery process, and following certain steps in order to promote faster healing. Our new guide details these considerations so that patients can return to regular activity as soon as possible."
