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
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
