SHOULDER PAIN

Your shoulders are the most mobile and one of the most potentially unstable joints in the body. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, approximately 6 million people seek help for shoulder pain each year. Shoulder pain may be localized or felt in areas around the shoulder and down the arm.

Causes can be age-related, overuse, strain, repetitive motion, improper technique during activity or sports, injury or heredity. Most shoulder problems involve soft tissues, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Our goal is to decrease pain and improve function.
Common conditions we treat:    
Sprains, strains
Shoulder dislocation and instability
Shoulder tendinitis
Rotator cuff injury
Total shoulder replacement
Frozen shoulder
When it comes to shoulder pain, not moving or using your shoulder can lead to complete loss of shoulder mobility. Most doctors recommend therapy as the first course of action, unless a rotator cuff tear is severe enough to warrant surgery. With therapy, range of motion improves and joint pain and inflammation decreases, making the injury easier to live with daily.
