Are you having shoulder pain that is preventing you from doing what you love the most or performing at your best abilities?
Shoulder pain can occur as a result of numerous injuries, issues with muscular development, or even postural influences. The severity can range from the mild to severe discomfort of a strained muscle to the bone-on-bone friction of arthritis.
Shoulder pain can simply present when reaching overhead to a shelf to put dishes away or when you’re struggling to find a comfortable position to sleep in without feeling a dull aching pain in your shoulder and neck. It can show up as a result of a sudden injury or overuse, making you feel as if your shoulder is immobile.
Whatever the case may be, The PT Network is dedicated to offering you natural pain management modalities.
Our physical therapists are movement experts, trained to get to the root cause of your pain and dysfunction through various evaluation techniques. At the time of your evaluation, we will examine your range of motion, strength, coordination, medical history, joint mobility, and joint mechanics.
Physical therapy is a natural and safe alternative for relief for shoulder pain, without the need for harmful drugs or invasive surgery. Our Cary, NC physical therapists have treated a number of conditions resulting in shoulder pain, with patients finding improvement and relief after just a few visits.
The most common cause of shoulder pain – rotator cuff injuries
Your rotator cuff is composed of the muscles and tendons surrounding your shoulder joint. Sometimes, the rotator cuff can become torn, injured or irritated, due to repetitive overhead motions performed in sports (such as tennis or swimming) or work related traumatic or overuse injuries.
Those who experience rotator cuff injuries typically experience a dull ache deep in their shoulder, arm weakness, difficulty reaching behind their backs, and disturbed sleep due to pain. At The PT Network, our natural and non-invasive methods can help relieve your shoulder pain and heal your rotator cuff injury.
At The PT Network, we will conduct a physical evaluation and diagnostic tests to determine if you do indeed have a rotator cuff tear, impingement or overuse syndrome. We will design a personalized treatment plan based on the needs of your diagnosis. The treatment plan that your physical therapist sets up for you, will help you achieve a pain-free life and improve your sports specific performance.
Additional causes of shoulder pain include:
- Frozen shoulder
- Rotator cuff tear
