Physical Therapy for Shoulder Pain
At Rising Tide Physical Therapy we are shoulder pain experts. Shoulder pain is one of the most common reasons many patients come to see us and affects upwards of 26% of the population. Shoulder pain is typically a direct result of physical activities including playing sports, weight lifting, trauma, manual labor, or it can even be caused by repetitive movements and overuse.
The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the entire body with an enormous range of motion. Common symptoms of shoulder pain can include:
- Sharp pain when moving the shoulder
- Increased pain with movement
- Dull ache or pain that is constant or lingers
- Pain that continuously gets worse throughout the day
- Severe ache/pain
Shoulder aches and pains can be due to a number of reasons including, but not limited to:
- Frozen shoulder
- Shoulder impingement syndrome
- Shoulder dislocation
- Labral tear
- Rotator cuff tear
- Instability in the shoulder
- Fracture or broken bone
Although surgery can provide relief from shoulder pain, in many cases non-surgical interventions like physical therapy are more effective. Physical therapy is less expensive and less prone to complications than surgery and can be a highly effective way to treat shoulder pain.
The treatment options to relieve your shoulder pain will depend heavily on the condition and cause of your pain, which is why we recommend a full shoulder pain assessment to get started.
