Understanding Your Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can significantly impact your daily life, restricting your ability to perform simple tasks, engage in physical activities, or enjoy your favorite hobbies.

At Corrective Physical Therapy, we believe in providing individualized care tailored to your specific needs. When you visit us for shoulder pain, you can expect:

  3. Customized Treatment Plan: Based on our evaluation findings, your goals, and the factors causing your shoulder pain, we develop a personalized treatment plan. This plan may include a combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, and other evidence-based interventions.
  4. Active Rehabilitation: We emphasize active rehabilitation to restore strength, flexibility, and stability in your shoulder. Our approach focuses on empowering you with the knowledge and tools to manage your pain, prevent future injuries, and enhance your overall shoulder function.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Our skilled therapists are experienced in addressing various shoulder conditions, including:

Rotator Cuff Injuries:

  • Rotator cuff injuries often occur due to overuse, repetitive motions, or traumatic events.
  • Symptoms may include shoulder weakness, pain during overhead movements, limited range of motion, or difficulty sleeping on the affected side.
  • Our targeted rehabilitation techniques can help relieve pain, restore strength, and optimize the function of your rotator cuff muscles.

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis):

  • Frozen shoulder is characterized by stiffness, pain, and limited range of motion in the shoulder joint.
  • It can result from injury, prolonged immobilization, or certain medical conditions.
  • Our physical therapists employ gentle mobilization techniques, stretching exercises, and gradual shoulder movements to alleviate stiffness and improve joint mobility.

Shoulder Impingement Syndrome:

  • Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons or bursa within the shoulder joint become compressed or irritated.
  • It can cause pain with overhead activities, reaching behind the back, or during lifting.
  • Through targeted exercises and manual therapy, we can address the underlying causes of impingement and promote pain-free shoulder movement.

Labral Tears and Instability:

  • Labral tears or shoulder instability can cause pain, clicking sensations, or a feeling of the shoulder "slipping out."
  • These conditions may result from trauma, repetitive motions, or sports-related activities.
  • Our skilled therapists employ specialized techniques to improve shoulder stability, enhance proprioception, and restore optimal function.
