Shoulder pain is a common problem that can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, overuse, poor posture, and underlying medical conditions. Physical therapy can be an effective way to treat shoulder pain and restore function to the affected area.
Physical therapy for shoulder pain typically involves a combination of exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities. The goals of treatment may include reducing pain and inflammation, improving range of motion, strengthening muscles, and promoting healing.
Common physical therapy treatments for shoulder pain include:
- Shoulder blade squeezes
- Wall slides
- Rotator cuff exercises
In addition to these treatment options, our physical therapists may use manual therapy techniques, such as massage, stretching, and joint mobilization to help relieve your pain and improve function.
