Shoulder Physical Therapy
At Excel Physical Therapy, our shoulder physical therapists specialize in shoulder and arm pain injury and will help to reduce your pain and other related symptoms.
Shoulder Rehab: What to Expect
Our physical therapists are board-certified and experienced at shoulder physical therapy treatment and pain reduction for a wide range of problems including:
- Rotator cuff pain
- Rotator cuff therapy
- Shoulder dislocation
- Chronic arthritis pain
- Tendinitis and bursitis
- Cartilage injuries (glenoid labrum tears)
- Subluxation and hypermobility
- Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder
- Throwing or pitching injuries
Shoulder physical therapy and shoulder rehab is, unfortunately, a common need because of the joint’s wide range of movement—it is a ball and socket joint supported by ligaments and the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is prone to injury because it is a group of muscles that support the shoulder and guide bone movement.
Rotator cuff pain comes when the function of muscles and ligaments around the joint are out of balance. An Excel physical therapist can help to restore a balanced function of those shoulder muscles and ligaments around the joint through shoulder rehab.
Our physical therapists understand chronic pain and are here to help. We have extensive experience with a wide variety of shoulder and arm injuries.
Common types of shoulder physical therapy include:
- Therapy for rotator cuff
- Improvement of limited range of motion after rotator cuff repair
- Shoulder impingement physical therapy exercises
- Rheumatoid arthritis exercise (or other forms of arthritis)
- Increased range of motion and strength after shoulder replacement
Shoulder rehab can help if you are experiencing any of the following:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Pain associated with reaching and throwing
- Pain associated with moving hands to the middle of back
- Clicking sounds with shoulder movement
- Shoulder weakness or discomfort
- Shoulder pain at night
At your first appointment, a board-certified shoulder physical therapist will listen first. We want to better understand the pain or injury you are experiencing. We want to know what you’re feeling, how long you’ve been in pain and what approaches to pain relief you’ve already tried. Your physical therapist will carefully evaluate your range of motion and strength to pinpoint the precise source of your pain or problem. As needed or requested, we will consult with your physician and review your medical history before recommending a shoulder rehab plan and treatment approach that will get you on the road to recovery.
