Physical Therapy For Shoulder Pain

You stretch, and it hurts.  You lift something up, and it hurts.  You carry groceries into your house and it hurts.  Enough of that shoulder pain already!  It’s finally time, once and for all to get rid of it, so your shoulder pain is a thing of the past.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

There is an endless list of reasons why you’re experiencing shoulder pain.

Car Accident Injury – While it should always be worn, there are those rare occasions when a seatbelt saves someone’s life, but causes shoulder injuries. Soft tissue, muscle tendons and joints can be damaged in car accidents and will require medical attention to properly heal.

Sports-Related Injury – The swinging of a baseball bat, a football player who runs into another player, or perhaps a bicycle crash… just three examples of how a shoulder can be injured in sports in very different ways.

Slip and Fall Injury – Depending on how you fall, a shoulder can bear the brunt of the weight in a slip and fall accident.

Post-Surgery – It goes without saying that there will be pain during the healing process following surgery, and it needs to be managed by a medical professional to ensure proper healing and recovery time.

Bursitis – According to the Mayo Clinic, “Bursitis (bur-SY-tis) is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs — called bursae (bur-SEE) — that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near your joints. Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed. The most common locations for bursitis are in the shoulder, elbow and hip.”

Arthritis – everydayhealth.com describes arthritis as “a condition that causes inflammation of the joints and can affect anyone from young children to seniors. It is typically characterized by joint pain and stiffness that make movement painful and difficult.”

Keep in mind, your shoulder pain could be the result of another condition that can result in acute or chronic pain.  And of course, other ailments that need to be considered as well, such as cancer, a bone disease, or another significant issue.  Regardless of what caused your shoulder pain, don’t keep living with that discomfort.  Get it checked by a medical professional or physical therapist as soon as possible, so you can rule out a more serious condition and get started on the road to recovery.
