Shoulder pain complicates everyday life. It may come from the shoulder joint, or from any of the surrounding muscles, ligaments or tendons. The pain can keep you awake and keep you from doing the things you want to do. Sometimes people are diagnosed with a “Frozen Shoulder” which causes pain and stiffness.
In physical therapy, our most basic obligation is to medically screen you and make sure that you are being treated in the right place. Physical therapists are trained to identify red flags that would require further medical assessment. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to the proper place. Physical therapists are also trained to help you find the root cause of your condition and to help you resolve your issue without medication or surgery whenever possible.
Your physical therapist can help you address shoulder pain and the functional difficulties related to it. Some of the common conditions we address:
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis or Tear
- Labral Tear
- Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
- Shoulder Impingement
- Shoulder Dislocation
- Shoulder Subluxation
- AC Joint Sprain
- Post Op Care
- Muscle Strain or Imbalance
- Shoulder Instability
- Athletic Injury
Your physical therapist will perform a thorough examination and will work with you to develop your goals for treatment and a physical therapy plan to help you achieve those goals.
You don’t need to hurt any longer, call us to get an evaluation and treatment. Our physical therapists are licensed, experienced and committed to seeing you restored to better health.
