Shoulder pain treatment in Havelock, NC

Treating Shoulder Pain

Your shoulders are complex joints that play an important role in your daily life. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to reach up or down or rotate your arms. Actually, without this joint, you couldn’t have arms in the first place because they’re what connects your arms to your body.

Since your shoulders are so important, you must take good care of them. That’s why when your shoulder is in severe or long-lasting pain, you should see a physical therapist for help.

Causes of shoulder pain

A sore shoulder on occasion is normal and is usually nothing to worry about. Sometimes, you might sleep on your shoulder in an awkward position, which makes it sore the next day. However, shoulder pain that is extreme or long-lasting may be the sign of something more serious.

Here are some of the common conditions that cause chronic shoulder pain:

  • Dislocation
  • Strained muscles
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Arthritis
  • Pinched nerve
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis

These kinds of conditions cannot resolve themselves, which is why you should see a physical therapist.

How does physical therapy treat shoulder pain?

Physical therapists are licensed healthcare professionals who are experts in treating physical injuries and debilitating conditions. When your bones, muscles, joints and ligaments are hurt, these are the professionals you want to trust.

At Peak Performance Sports and Physical Therapy, all of our treatments are personalized to the need of each individual. If you visit our clinic in Havelock, North Carolina, you’ll meet one of our team members who will assess your condition and work with you until you reach your recovery goals.

Many of our physical therapists treat shoulder pain using:

  • Stretching and exercising
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Deep tissue massage and hands-on therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound

Some extreme forms of shoulder pain require surgery for treatment. Physical therapists can still help in these cases too. We can help you prepare for surgery and recover afterward for a faster and better recovery.
