Physical Therapy and Shoulders

One of the areas we use constantly and often without thinking are shoulders. Like many other areas of our amazing bodies (ok mine isn’t amazing, yours might be), it is a delicate and precise intersection of several moving parts. All of those parts are subject to wear and tear and stress.  Movements that are outside the scope of that joint’s ability are called injuries. This article will describe how physical therapy and shoulders go hand in hand.

As we talk about the parts of our bodies most affected by age and overuse, its important to remember as I said in a former blog, our bodies and systems are like machines with lots of moving parts.
Some of the more common reasons we have pain and motion problems with shoulders are:

Bursitis: Bursae are small, fluid-filled sacs that are located in joints throughout the body. They act as cushions between bones and the soft tissues. They also help reduce friction between the muscles and the bone. Sometimes, excessive use of the shoulder leads to inflammation and swelling of its bursa . This condition is called bursitis. Many daily activities, such as combing your hair or getting dressed, may become difficult.

Tendinitis: A tendon is a cord that connects muscle to bone. Most tendinitis is a result of a wearing down of the tendon that occurs slowly over time, much like the wearing process on the sole of a shoe.

Arthritis:  The most common type of arthritis in the shoulder is osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis. Symptoms, such as swelling, pain, and stiffness, typically begin during middle age. Osteoarthritis develops slowly and the pain it causes worsens over time.

Acute injuries : Broken bones, tendon tears and shoulder dislocations are some acute injuries people can experience. Broken bones often cause severe pain, swelling, and bruising about the shoulder.

People will avoid shoulder movements in an attempt to lessen  pain. This can lead to tightening or stiffening of the soft tissue parts of the joint, resulting in a painful restriction of motion.

Our physical therapy team can help you relieve that pain and stiffness without drugs.

You can now be part of our new Wellness / Maintenance program.
