Shoulder injuries and shoulder pain are common with athletics, recreational activities, and even with daily tasks. Injuries can range from minor sprains or strains to severe injuries (muscle tears, fractures) and can result from falls, throwing or over using your shoulder. Pain can arise from muscle strains, rotator cuff tears, joint arthritis, tendonitis, dislocations, fractures or ligament disruptions. Your pain may even be coming from a problem in your neck!
Physical therapy can be helpful in first distinguishing the problem, then by treating it, thereby decreasing pain, and restoring your function. Many times conservative care through physical therapy can prevent surgery. At MTI Physical Therapy the latest evidence-based techniques are utilized to restore flexibility, joint mobility, strength, and balance.
If you are looking to return to recreational sport/activity or just to be able to reach without pain to put on your coat, MTI has the tools available to help you achieve your goals.
