Alleviate Shoulder Pain With Physical Therapy
The shoulder is a complex joint made up of tendons and muscles, allowing you a wide range of mobility. In fact, it’s one of the joints with the most range of motion in the human body. Because we utilize our shoulders so much (think: playing sports, reaching for something around the house, playing with children, etc.), pain localized to this area is quite common and typically due to overuse.
These injuries typically develop over a long period of time due to underlying musculoskeletal issues. Because the body is able to adjust and adapt to these changes, your symptom of pain doesn’t show up until the problem has had time to worsen and requires skilled treatment. A detailed and specific physical therapy plan early on after an injury can save you from a lot of pain, compensations in your daily life, and money spent on healthcare.
