Shoulder pain can come about for a variety of different reasons; an accident, overdoing an activity where you used your shoulder, or a more serious condition like arthritis.
The shoulder is a complex combination of muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments that enable you to rotate your arms and allow for a wide range-of-motion. When your shoulders aren’t able to function as normal or are causing pain, it can be quite debilitating. It’s important to take care of your shoulders and avoid putting undue stress on them. Here are some tips to help keep your shoulders strong and healthy:
Physical therapy is a great treatment option to help you recover from a shoulder injury and to prevent them from occurring in the future. Your physical therapy program will begin with a thorough evaluation where your therapist will pinpoint the cause of your shoulder pain and design a custom treatment plan based on your needs. Specific exercises and stretches can help increase the range-of-motion and function in your shoulder. Other treatments, like heat and ice therapy and electrical stimulation can help relieve pain and stiffness. Your therapist can even help guide you on any needed ergonomic changes needed to the workplace to prevent any further injury.
