Winging Scapula: Treatment options
Most problems associated with a winging scapula can be solved with physiotherapy. This will involve the strengthening of weakened muscles and the retraining of dysfunctional muscles to work properly. Mr Cole will work closely with your team of physiotherapists to ensure a programme of exercises designed specifically for your shoulder and the individual causes unique to your situation.
In rare cases you may require an operation. This could be to remove a lesion, stablise your shoulder joint or tendon transfers to stabilize the scapula, for example. If you are offered surgery, Mr. Cole will discuss it in detail with you.
Following your surgery, your team of physiotherapists will work with you to devise an exercise programme. This will be designed with advice from Mr. Cole to help you recover as quickly and efficiently as possible.
