A shoulder injury can happen in any sport or can be brought on from something as simple as sleeping in the wrong position. Whether you have damaged your rotator cuff because you were a little too overzealous at touch football with your friends on Sunday, or you are sore from trying to weed the garden or paint the garage in one afternoon, this is the part of our website for you.
It is our aim to provide you with the information and tools to help you recover from a shoulder injury and to prevent future similar injuries from occurring.
When you have proper information about how to stay healthy, you will find that your physical activities will be more rewarding, your sleep will be more sound and your daily grind won’t wear you down.
What does physical therapy do to stop shoulder pain and stiffness?
Our highly trained Physical Therapists will work with you on a variety of stretching and rehabilitation exercises to bring pain-free mobility back to your shoulder and your life. A complete evaluation will verify exactly where the problem is, as well as its severity.
To be most effective, most physical therapy for shoulder pain will incorporate strength and flexibility in entire shoulder moves. Stretching is key for improving flexibility.
Your physical therapist will likely talk you through stretching moves, as well as gently manipulate your muscles.
For building strength, your physical therapy will probably involve some form of resistance training, such as with free weights, long rubber bands, or even cycles that you pedal with your hands.
