Your shoulders are a complex part of your body – they are your most flexible and movable joints, consisting of multiple bones, muscles, and tendons. They provide you with a great amount of mobility, allowing you to perform many of your daily tasks, in addition to several exercise regimens. However, this also means that there are many ways that the shoulders can become injured, resulting in pain and lack of mobility.
Shoulder pain can be experienced due to a multitude of different causes, and there are several steps you can take to ease your discomfort. Physical therapy is a natural, easy, and effective way to ease shoulder pain. To find out how physical therapy can benefit you, contact Silver Creek Physical Therapy today!
There are several underlying causes that could result in shoulder pain. For example, a sudden injury or trauma to the shoulders can cause them to become painful. Repetitive motions can also cause shoulder pain, as your muscles, joints, and tendons are working in overdrive. Physical therapy can treat several specific conditions that may be contributing to the pain or discomfort that you are feeling in your shoulder. Some of the most common conditions resulting in shoulder pain include:
A physical therapist works hard to provide improvement to your flexibility and range of motion, in addition to relieving the pain and discomfort you are feeling. They may implement any combination of treatment methods, such as cold and hot therapies to ease pain and increase mobility; massage therapy to relieve pressure on your muscles, joints, and tendons; or an exercise regimen to promote movement and healing of the affected area. Other treatment methods may include aquatic therapy, ultrasound, or electrical nerve stimulation.
Whatever type of pain you’re experiencing, a trained physical therapist can create a specialized program to treat your particular condition. Physical therapy has been proven to help with several conditions, and in many cases it has eliminated the need for harmful drugs and invasive surgeries altogether.
