The shoulder is the most complicated joint in the body and has to move through an incredible range of motion while maintaining strength and support. Shoulder pain can occur for a variety of reasons, but is typically from poor posture, weakness of rotator cuff muscles or injury. Diagnoses of shoulder pain that the Physical Therapist team at Advantage Physical Therapy treats include (but not limited to): bursitis, tendinitis, impingement syndrome, nerve injuries, rotator cuff involvement, postural/ strength imbalances, rib syndromes, and a variety of other pathological reasons contributing to shoulder regional pain.
Since the shoulder motions are so complex, it takes experts in differential diagnosis and movement analysis to truly understand what is the root cause of your problem. Our expert physical therapists at Advantage Physical Therapy have years of medical training in differential diagnosis of a host of underlying neuro-musculo-skeletal pathologies to determine exactly where your pain is coming from. We create a comprehensive treatment plan that will quickly relieve your pain and return your shoulder’s optimal function. The goal is to get you back to normal activities, as pain-free and as quickly as possible. Furthermore, we provide extensive education on posture techniques and progressive exercises you can do to maintain your shoulder health. Many physical therapy clinics are not adept at creating and progressing exercise and rehabilitation plans as efficiently and aggressively as they should, and are often times too easy with the activities they prescribe. This only hinders your progress. We strive to defy this trend and promise to develop a plan that will get you back on track as quickly as possible!
