SHOULDER PAIN & INJURIES

Take back control with TrueFix Physical Therapy.  High quality, consistent, and individualized care is the foundation of our company, and what we pride ourselves on the most.

The shoulder is a complex and highly mobile joint in the body. Injuries to this area often involve muscles, ligaments, tendons, or the joint capsule itself. Shoulder pain and injuries are commonly due to activities that require repetitive motions or place excessive load on the structures themselves. 

Common injuries and conditions include: 

  • Rotator cuff tendonitis 
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder impingement

At TrueFix Physical Therapy, we are highly trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat the above conditions that might be affecting your ability to be pain free and do the things that you love. An individualized approach and attention to your specific deficits is paramount for proper recovery and return to the activities you love.

Shoulder Conditions We Treat

Rotator cuff tendonitis:
The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles that attach from your shoulder blade to your upper arm bone. It’s not only responsible for allowing your arm to rotate, but it also provides stability to your joint while you’re using it during daily activities or exercise. If overused, the tendons of these muscles can become inflamed and painful.

Rotator cuff tears:
A rotator cuff tear occurs when excessive force is placed on the rotator cuff tendons. This can happen during a hard fall or with any other sudden injury to your shoulder.

Frozen shoulder:
Frozen shoulder occurs when the capsule around your shoulder joint (think seran wrap over a golf ball on a golf tee) becomes inflamed. Symptoms include limitations in shoulder range of motion and pain.

Bursitis:
A bursa is a small fluid filled sac that helps to relieve the pressure between tissues in our bodies. We have bursa everywhere, from our hips to our knees. The bursae in the shoulder can become inflamed and aggravated, causing you discomfort with activity.

Shoulder impingement:
This can occur when your shoulder and shoulder blade don’t move as efficiently as they need to. Inefficiencies in strength and/or mobility can cause structures around your shoulders to be compressed or “pinched”.
