Shoulder Pain

Your shoulder is very flexible, but it is also fragile. Pain in your shoulder can result from one of a number of causes. An irritated nerve in your neck, repeated overuse, or an injury, can cause inflammation and stiffness and make everyday activities painful.

Signs that you should seek treatment include:

  • Shoulder pain that persists beyond a few days
  • Recurring shoulder pain, even if it has a history of settling on its own
  • Inability to carry objects or use the arm
  • Injury that causes deformity of the joint
  • Shoulder pain that occurs at night or while resting
  • Inability to raise the arm
  • Swelling or significant bruising around the joint or arm
  • Signs of an infection, including fever, redness, warmth or swelling

The treatment of shoulder pain depends entirely on the cause of the problem.

At Physicians Health and Injury Center we look at your overall health- focusing not only on your shoulder but also on your lifestyle. This total approach to wellness helps determine the best treatment for your problem.

Your treatment depends on the cause of your shoulder pain. To improve the range of motion in your shoulder, our therapist may gently stretch the tissue in your shoulder, or suggest other types of treatment to reduce pain, restore range of motion, and regain strength. These may include electrical stimulation, ice or heat, ultrasound, trigger point therapy, or exercise.
