The shoulder is a complex joint involving multiple articulations, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bursae. Shoulder pain can originate from a variety of sources including, but not limited to, sprains/strains, subluxations/dislocations, degeneration, fractures, and inflammation. It is common for people of any age or walk of life to experience some level of shoulder pain in their lifetime.
Every day at SportsCare Physical Therapy we see a wide variety of shoulder problems from the simple to complex.When you initially come in for treatment, your SportsCare Physical Therapist will take a thorough history and physical exam to determine the possible sources of your shoulder pain. This information will be compiled and utilized to create a treatment plan specific to you. Your treatment will begin with the most effective treatments to address any impairments found here. If surgery is required, our physical therapists will work closely with your surgeon to provide the best rehabilitation possible in order to optimize your surgical outcomes and functional abilities.
Treatment for your shoulder pain may consist of increasing range of motion, increasing strength, and creating functional exercises tailored to your specific goals. Shoulder pain can be decreased through a variety of modalities that may include ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat/cold, and hands on manual therapy performed by your physical therapist. SportsCare even has therapists trained and certified in Kinesiotape techniques and dry needling which can be added to your treatment algorithm to expedite the process.
