Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

  • Adhesive capsulitis is the stiffening of the shoulder due to scar tissue, which results in loss of motion and painful movement.

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis & Bursitis

  • Tendinitis is caused by the overuse of the rotator cuff, which causes it to become inflamed.
  • Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that sits between the tendons of the rotator cuff and the shoulder bones.

Rotator Cuff Injuries

  • Rotator cuff strains and tears are caused by acute or overuse injury, such as a fall, car accident, sports, or other sudden injury.
  • Pre- & Post-Operative Rotator Cuff Repair
  • Pre- & Post-Operative Shoulder replacement
  • Osteoarthritis

Physical therapy for shoulder pain, injuries, or replacement typically consists of the following goals:

  • Strengthen shoulder muscles and surrounding musculature
  • Scapular strengthening, as the shoulder blade (scapula) acts as the foundation for shoulder stability
  • Restore the mechanics of the shoulder
  • Reduce pain and restore range of motion
  • Core & back strengthening
  • Posture training
