What is shoulder pain?

Pain or discomfort in your shoulder often happens as the result of a long-term injury you didn’t realize was developing. Overuse injuries happen when you repeatedly make specific movements, which damages various parts of a joint over time. 

Shoulder pain can also be the result of an acute injury that happens very suddenly. You might feel or hear a pop followed by pain in the event of one of these injuries. 

Either type of shoulder injury can happen in sports. Shoulder pain is particularly common among people who work in occupations that involve a lot of reaching, like painting or carpentry. At Advantage Physical Therapy, Jonathan works closely with you to restore the full function of your shoulder joint. 


Which injuries and conditions cause shoulder pain?

There are multiple injuries and conditions that can lead to shoulder pain as well as symptoms that tend to come with joint pain such as stiffness and swelling. 

At Advantage Physical Therapy, Jonathan routinely rehabilitates shoulder injuries to improve shoulder pain. You might benefit from physical therapy if you have shoulder pain from:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures
  • Impingement
  • Joint instability

Jonathan may recommend multiple therapies and home care strategies to manage your shoulder pain and minimize it over time. 


How is shoulder pain treated?

Advantage Physical Therapy offers treatment and rehabilitation for shoulder pain using evidence-based physical therapy strategies. Your shoulder pain care plan might involve:


Therapeutic exercises

Therapeutic exercises are a cornerstone of physical therapy. Jonathan teaches you specific movements to improve the function of your shoulder. You can perform them easily at home, or during your consultations. Let Jonathan know immediately if you feel any sharp pain or anything past mild discomfort during these exercises.


Manual therapy

Manual therapy includes stretching, massage, and instrument-assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM). They improve the function and mobility of your joint. 


Dry needling

Dry needling involves pressing fine needles into specific pressure points. It helps the muscles in your shoulder relax and alleviates painful knots.
