The shoulder is a ball and socket joint with a large range of movement. Such a mobile joint tends to be more susceptible to injury. Shoulder pain can stem from many different causes.

Shoulder Pain

There are many types of Injuries related to shoulder pain:

Rotator Cuff: Injury to your rotator cuff is the most common—in a recent study, two-thirds of people with shoulder pain had a rotator cuff problem. A group of muscles and tendons that attach to the bones of the shoulder joint, the rotator cuff keeps the ball of your upper arm bone centered in your shoulder socket and also helps you raise and rotate your arm.

Tendonitis: Doing the same motion over and over again can lead to inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons, also called tendonitis, which can cause shoulder pain. 

Frozen Shoulder: Medically known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder results when the connective tissue that lines your shoulder joint becomes thickened and inflamed.

 Labral Tears: The labrum is a piece of cartilage attached to the rim of the shoulder socket that helps keep the ball of the joint in place. Labral tears may result from injury, or sometimes as part of the aging process. Symptoms and treatment vary depending on the type and severity of the tear.

Physical Therapy Treatment

We will work with you with a variety of stretching and rehabilitation exercises to bring pain-free mobility back to your shoulder. A complete evaluation will verify exactly where the problem is, as well as its severity.

Typically physical therapy for shoulder pain will incorporate strength and flexibility in entire shoulder moves. Stretching is key for improving flexibility. Resistance training, such as with free weights, long rubber bands, or even cycles that you pedal with your hands can be helpful in building strength.
