Shoulder Pain Relief

The shoulder is the loosest joint in the body. It requires great range of motion with a degree of stability for normal functional activities.

The ligaments, muscles and tendons around the shoulder play an important role to stabilize and control purposeful movement through a complex series of biomechanical inter-related movements of the shoulder blade and collarbone.

Signs and symptoms of the shoulder include: pain, catching, weakness, dead arm feeling, pins and needles, numbness, grinding and stiffness.

These signs and symptoms can also originate from the cervical spine. This must be carefully investigated with a complete physical therapy assessment to arrive at the correct cause.

Diagnosis is your doctor’s responsibility. Assessment and correct treatment is your physical therapist’s responsibility.

Many diagnoses are assessed and treatable, including:

  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis-subacromial bursitis
  • Rotator cuff tears/rupture
  • Biceps tears/rupture
  • Arthritis
  • Frozen shoulder/capsulitis
  • Post surgical arthroscopy/shoulder replacement
  • Dislocation/instability
  • Subluxation
  • Impingement
  • Nerve entrapment

Treatment and a specialized home exercise program will be prescribed and instructed.
