Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a common source of joint pain, in part, due to the large amount of potential motion in the joint. To allow for this wide range of movement, the shoulder must rely on multiple ligaments and muscles for stability. As a result, the potential for developing muscle imbalances is increased and can be a cause for shoulder dysfunction. In addition, the arm is part of our protective mechanism during falls as we often use our outstretched arm to “break” a fall. Physical therapy can help following an injury whether it be as a result of overuse, surgery, simple strain, or a fall. Physical therapy focuses on restoring motion, strength, and improving joint alignment to help decrease pain and meet your goals.
