Shoulder Pain Treatment

Shoulder Pain Treatment

As the most movable joint in the body, the shoulder’s flexibility and range of motion make it susceptible to overuse and injury. The shoulder pain can be debilitating, affecting your ability to reach, lift, and carry items, and may even disrupt your sleep. In some cases, the pain may resolve with rest and pain medication, but for most people, the pain only gets worse. 

Physical therapy is a non-invasive intervention for shoulder pain that provides impressive recovery outcomes similar to surgery. Different physical therapy techniques and modalities can help to reduce pain, restore mobility, improve strength and flexibility, and reduce the risk of further injury.

Our first goal is to conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine the location of the pain, the range of motion, and joint instability. Once the evaluation is complete, we create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your recovery goals. Some of the common shoulder problems we’ve successfully treated include, dislocations, separations, bursitis, rotator cuff tears, tendinitis, and frozen shoulder.

Treatment varies for every patient but the programs may include manual therapy, joint mobilization, flexibility, and strengthening exercises, and modalities like heat, and ice therapy, electrical stimulation, and patient education to avoid further injury.
