What are the most common causes of shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain can present itself in many different forms because of the complex nature of the area. Your shoulder is made up of a large joint with accompanying muscles, ligaments, nerves, and more, all of which work together to allow you to throw a ball, walk effectively, pick up your kids and so much more. When one of these areas is not working properly, is injured, or deteriorates over time, it can cause the entire shoulder to suffer.
Shoulder issues are most common in people who frequently use these muscles and ligaments and put stress on the entire area, but you don’t have to be a pitcher or quarterback to feel chronic shoulder pain. Many people who work on assembly lines, in factories, or in other manual labor-intensive jobs often have shoulder pain as a result of frequent use.
People can also experience shoulder pain as a result of falls, car accidents, or other one-off injuries. In these instances, treating the injury effectively can speed up recovery and limit long-term issues.
How is shoulder pain diagnosed?
We pride ourselves on active listening and customized medical plans, so based on your symptoms, reasons for the injury, and our data from the examination, x-rays, MRIs, and more, we can make an accurate diagnosis and a plan for corrective action.
How is shoulder pain treated?
Depending on the diagnosis, there are several ways to treat shoulder pain and we typically use several of them to give our patients the best chance at a speedy recovery.
Our team has an expert knowledge base of traditional physical therapy techniques which can accelerate healing, strengthen the area and improve the condition of the shoulder as a whole. We also offer massage therapy, dry needling, chiropractic care, and other natural methods to facilitate healing.
In addition to time-tested techniques, we also employ some of the most cutting-edge technological advances in our therapy. We can offer PRP injections, ozone therapy, and more in conjunction with more traditional methods for a holistic healing experience.
What can I do at home for shoulder pain?
It’s our goal to help you heal as quickly as possible, so we help develop an at-home regimen in addition to your office visits. Our team can develop an exercise routine to help you regain strength, increase your range of motion and reduce pain.
