Poor posture, repeated stress, muscular imbalance and overuse are only a few of the many causes of shoulder pain. Small shoulder irritations can snowball into major problems if left untreated, so it is important to seek treatment at the first sign of pain. At Momentum Physical Therapy, we can help you relieve the shoulder pain you are experiencing through targeted exercises, manual therapy and more. Whether you’re an all-star pitcher or simply suffered a workplace injury, our San Antonio physical therapists will individualize a physical therapy treatment plan to strengthen your shoulder and relieve your pain. Below are a few common causes of shoulder pain.
Shoulders have the greatest range of motion out of any joint in the human body. While convenient for movement, this range of motion also makes shoulders susceptible to injury. Shoulder pain is common in athletes whose sport requires them to make repeated overhead movements like baseball, football and swimming. Addressing shoulder pain early is important to prevent greater problems down the line.
If your shoulder pain persists for longer than two weeks, schedule a consultation with a Momentum physical therapist. Both in place of and following surgery, physical therapy can help strengthen the surrounding muscles and relieve pain.
You don’t have to live with shoulder pain.
