Shoulder Pain Relief
Shoulder Pain Can Limit Daily Activities
Shoulder pain can take many forms – it can occur when you are near the top shelf to put dishes away or have difficulty finding a comfortable place to sleep, but you do not feel a lot of excruciating pain. It can show up due to an injury, making you feel as if your shoulder is immobile.
There are several reasons why a person feels shoulder pain and stiffness ranges from temporary discomfort in the muscles to joint muscles in the bone muscles.
Whatever the cause of your shoulder pain, the Trinity team is committed to providing you with natural pain management modalities.
What will a treatment plan for shoulder pain look like?
Physical therapy is a natural, easy, and comfortable way to find relief for shoulder pain without the need for harmful drugs or invasive surgery.
Team Trinity has treated several conditions resulting in shoulder pain, with patients finding improvement and relief after just a few short sessions – and sometimes less!
Our physical therapists are movement experts trained to pinpoint the cause of your pain through various diagnostic techniques.
We look at the range of movements, strength, coordination, medical history, movement together, and our communication power during the assessment.
Once we have established the cause of your shoulder pain, we can create a specialized combination of shoulder physiotherapy methods to manage and relieve your pain.
Gentle manual therapy helps restore normal joint movement, ease soft tissue restrictions, and promote circulation. At the same time, special therapeutic exercises restore the strength and progression of the muscle contraction around the shoulder.
Finally, we will teach you techniques to improve your strengths and prevent shoulder problems in the future.
Why am I experiencing shoulder pain?
Your shoulder can accomplish many physical feats and has the most incredible range of all the joints in your body.
The type of pain you feel in your shoulder can vary, depending on what is causing it. Pain from impingement, for example, typically occurs as you raise your arm and begins at a certain point in the range of motion.
Pain caused by an injured shoulder can cause chronic pain whenever your hand moves in a particular direction. Serious injuries can cause sudden, severe pain that prevents you from moving your shoulder at all.
Are you experiencing any of these shoulder pain conditions?
Shoulder stiffness gives the situation plenty of time to cause pain. Here are some of the most common causes of shoulder pain:
Also known as “adhesive capsulitis,” a frozen shoulder can occur if your arm has been in a cast or sling for a while or if you have been bedridden for an extended period of time. In addition, some ethnicities are pre-arranged, and women usually have more instances than men. It is most common in women aged 40-60 years. Frozen shoulder results in a painful loss of motion in the shoulder with a tightening of the shoulder joint that severely limits motion
The two primary forms of arthritis pains that affect the upper arm are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the shoulder joint experiences significant “wear and tear,” typically due to age or excessive overuse. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the nervous system attacks the area around the shoulder joint and causes pain and inflammation. Both problems cause mobility, weakness in the shoulder muscles and difficulties in normal daily activities.
Impingement often occurs due to inconsistent body posture and tracking of the humeral head when lifting your arms overhead. Pain often occurs when you lift your arm above 90 degrees.
Tendinitis occurs when the shoulder is used excessively due to strenuous work, concrete movements, or overhead activity. In addition, poor posture is essential because it alters the expected strength of the tendons and can put tendons at risk of injury. This causes the neck to swell constantly and causes swelling and painful contraction when the hands are raised.
If tendonitis in your shoulders affects your quality of life, consult an orthopaedic specialist who is experienced in restoring the function of people with shoulder inflammation.
Rotator cuff tear
The rotator cuff consists of four muscles, tendons and soft tissue around the shoulder. The purpose of the rotator cuff is to guide the shoulder correctly. In the case of injury, overuse, poor posture or even age, the spinal cord may be partially or entirely torn. It sometimes depends on the severity and condition, but appropriate medical treatment can often reduce the pain and strength of the spinal cord to make up for the injury.
Could it be a rotator cuff tear? – Common disorders of the upper arm
Although rotator cuff injuries sometimes require serious surgery, there are many physical therapy treatments (if not better) than surgery.
According to a recent Finland study, rotator cuff tears are treated in the case of inflammatory bowel disease alone, producing results similar to those performed in joints and surgeries.
In the same study, a follow-up of 167 patients who received physiotherapy for rotator cuff injuries showed that conventional therapies, such as physiotherapy, should be considered primarily to treat this disease.
The rotator cuff contains muscles and tendons around the shoulder blades. Repeated movements in sports (such as tennis) or at work (such as carpentry) can sometimes cause the rotating sleeve to tear or be damaged.
People with rotator cuff injuries or “torn shoulder” often report severe shoulder pain, weak arms, difficulty returning back and insomnia due to pain. At Trinity Rehab & Wellness, natural and irreversible methods help relieve the upper arm and repair rotator cuff injuries.
The Trinity team performs a physical assessment and diagnostic test to determine if you have a rotator cuff fracture. We develop a specific treatment plan based on your diagnostic needs.
