LOUISVILLE, Ky. - April 18, 2013 - PRLog -- Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stacie Grossfeld in Louisville, Kentucky, is the kind of physician genuinely driven to help people. For example, one day a patient asked her for more information about good exercises following shoulder surgery. While she could have just written a few suggestions down on paper or made a fast referral to a physical therapist, Dr. Grossfeld went home thinking about this patient’s need and before long she had an original solution. She decided to make some of her own videos to demonstrate different shoulder exercises for patients following shoulder surgery.

Without a lot of fancy marketing hype, Dr. Grossfeld created the videos at Orthopaedic Specialists, her orthopedic medical practice in Louisville, Kentucky.  The videos demonstrate good exercises following shoulder surgery and are now available on YouTube and on her website for people to learn from and use.

Shoulder surgeries are very common in the United States. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, around 200,000 people in the U.S. need rotator cuff surgery each year. Further, around 400,000 undergo surgical procedures for partial rotator cuff tears or rotator cuff tendonitis.  An additional 53,000 Americans have shoulder replacement surgery annually.

If you or someone you know has recently undergone shoulder surgery and is looking for examples of exercises to consider following shoulder surgery, check out Dr. Grossfeld’s YouTube channel for more information and demonstrations. Of course as with any medical condition, it is always advisable that you seek approval from your own medical care provider before trying any of these post-operative exercises.

The post-operative shoulder exercises demonstrated by Dr. Grossfeld in her videos include the pendulum exercise, the bowling ball exercise, the sternal lift and the lawnmower exercise.  For example, check out Dr. Grossfeld's demonstration of the pendulum exercise:

The pendulum exercise shows you how to carefully and safely move your arm in a pendulum (circular) type motion to help reduce scar tissue and to help prevent your shoulder from freezing up, sometimes called "frozen shoulder."

The bowling ball exercise helps you exercise the shoulder without putting any weight or force on your shoulder or actively moving your shoulder.  

The sternal lift exercise involves squeezing and releasing your shoulder blades in five second intervals.

The lawnmower exercise shows you how to bend your knee on your surgery side, bending forward and down, twisting at the waist, and pulling your scapula back as you stand up. The technique involved in all of these exercises is much clearer with Dr. Grossfeld’s demonstration, which she does wearing a shoulder sling.

This is not the only example of a time that Louisville orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stacie Grossfeld goes the extra mile for her patients. She is widely recognized as a kind and caring doctor with a determination to offer the best medical attention and service possible.

In recognition for her hard work and dedication to orthopedic medicine, Dr. Grossfeld recently received the Patients' Choice Award for 2012. Only about 5 percent of physicians and dentist receive patient scores high enough to qualify for this special recognition. Dr. Grossfeld has also been recognized by America Top 10 one of the top 10 orthopedic physicians in Louisville, Kentucky.
