Better Treatment for Shoulder Pain
We provide real solutions for a challenging injury.
The shoulder is a complex structure designed to provide both strength and a wide range of motion. The ball-and-socket style joint is built from the humerus (arm bone), the scapula (shoulder blade) and the clavicle (collar bone). Ligaments help support the shoulder. Muscular attachments help move the shoulder. Shoulder conditions may also be accompanied by limited spinal motion and rounded posture, resulting in poor shoulder alignment. Whenever any one of these connected parts are injured or damaged, it can affect our daily life in profound ways.
An approach that is more effective and less costly than surgery or injections.
In many instances, our approach to treatment is more effective than injections in long term relief of symptoms. In studies of non-traumatic rotator cuff tears, physical therapy alone produced results equal to those produced by arthroscopic surgery and open surgical repair.
A study published in Annals of Internal Medicine also found equal outcomes between physical therapy and steroidal injections when treating another common shoulder injury.
Equally important, our methods achieve these results at a lower cost and avoid the complications and side effects of surgery or steroid injections.
We find a long-term solution to your pain. No endless care.
We are focused on a recovery that both relieves your discomfort and maintains the results. Our comprehensive neuromuscular evaluation determines the source and causes of your pain. The physical evaluation is followed by the development of an individualized treatment plan. One-on-one sessions with our therapeutics staff help you regain the abilities you had prior to injury.
Our specialists use a variety of clinically proven techniques to relieve the painful symptoms and regain movement in the shoulder. We deliver treatment methods that are medically approved and clinically proven for effectiveness. Depending on the underlying cause, your treatment may involve active and passive joint mobilization, electrical stimulation, strengthening and stretching prescriptions or other modalities. Most importantly, we will teach you how to move better.
If your shoulder pain has lasted for more than two to three weeks and is accompanied by significant functional loss, it is important to visit a physical therapist.
