Due to factors such as weak rotator cuff muscles, poor posture, repetitive motions, or trauma, the shoulder can become injured, causing pain and limiting mobility. Physical therapy can effectively alleviate shoulder pain and improve mobility by addressing any combination of underlying issues such as muscle weakness, poor posture, repetitive motions, and trauma.
There are several shoulder-specific diagnoses that can create difficulties in performing daily tasks or participating in certain activities. Whether the pain is a nagging ache at the end of the range of motion, a sharp pain during sudden arm movements, or something in between, it is important to seek proper evaluation and diagnosis by a physical therapist.
