Shoulder Injury Therapy

 

Parry Physical Therapy Group Shoulder Injury Therapy

Do you get shoulder pain when raising your arm overhead, reaching out to grab something, or even just sleeping? Does your shoulder ache or throb, or do you feel a sharp pinch or catching when moving it.  Shoulder pain is very common and affects people of all ages.  Even the slightest discomfort seems to limit mobility and the ability to do everyday activities.  These symptoms may indicate an underlying impairment or pathology, and if not properly addressed by a physical therapist, may develop into an injury.  These injuries can cause localized pain or referred pain, further tissue damage, loss of range of motion, adhesions, scarring, or decreased muscle strength.  Additionally, prolonged untreated shoulder impairments and injuries along with abnormal strains  can lead to arthritis, further limiting your daily activities.

 

Some Diagnoses Associated With Shoulder Pain And Injuries 

  • Rotator Cuff Tear
  • Bicepts or Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Shoulder Dislocation
  • Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis)
  • Acromioclavicular Joint injuries

How Physical Therapy Can Help

Physical Therapy provides an effective and lasting non-invasive, conservative treatment of shoulder pain and injuries. If surgery for repair of bones, muscles (rotator cuff), or ligaments is necessary, physical therapy can help pre-operatively to optimize post-surgical outcomes, and also help post-operatively to get you back to the things you enjoy.

At Parry Parry Physical Therapy Group a doctor of physical therapy will perform a comprehensive evaluation to develop a customized treatment plan that is right for you! Your treatment might include:

  • Moist heat, ice, ultrasound, and/or electric stimulation to help control pain and swelling.
  • Manual therapy techniques to decrease swelling, improve range of motion, and joint  mobility of the shoulder.
  • Exercises and stretches to help improve range of motion, stability and strength.
  • Functional activities and sport related re-training geared toward getting back to your pre-injury activities.
  • Education on your specific  injury to help you understand how therapy works, the healing process, and a personalized home exercise program (HEP) to help you progress at home during and after your therapy is complete.

To relieve your shoulder pain and get back to all you love to do, give Parry Physical Therapy Group a call today!
