iStock 462343889Shoulder pain is, well, a pain – it impacts almost every movement you make.

Your shoulder joint is necessary for countless activities in daily life and connected to numerous muscles, tendons, and bones. When something minor goes wrong, you definitely notice it.

Physical therapy provides a comprehensive shoulder pain treatment because it focuses on proactive and long-term solutions.

Why is Physical Therapy the Right Choice for Shoulder Pain?

To get started, your physical therapist will identify the source of your shoulder pain. Some common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Pinched nerves in your neck, back, or shoulder
  • Stiff tendons, muscles, and ligaments also known as frozen shoulder
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Possible herniated discs or musculoskeletal conditions that caused pain to spread

Your Shallotte, NC physical therapist will create a well-rounded and personalized treatment plan focused on reducing your short-term pain, encouraging long-term mobility, and avoiding injuries in the future.
