The Surprising Causes of Shoulder Pain

The Surprising Causes of Shoulder Pain

Constant shoulder pain and not being able to move your arm, put on your coat, or reach for things without pain all leads to frustration, lack of sleep, decreased activity, and depression. It can also lead to pain killers, expensive MRI’s, multiple injections, and surgeries.

The sad news is that none of these options actually fix the root cause of your shoulder pain, they only mask the symptoms.

There is a Lasting Solution

But there is a lasting solution without the use of medications and injections, or surgery. This solution starts with identifying the root cause of your shoulder pain.  As physical therapists, we know that most shoulder pain comes from a musculoskeletal dysfunction. Tight or out-of-shape muscles around the shoulder blade, or even down in the hip can cause the shoulder joint to be stressed and extremely painful.

Only One Healthcare Practitioner Fully Understands Musculoskeletal Dysfunction

As physical therapists, we also know that once we address the root dysfunction, the shoulder pain goes away. Unfortunately, most health care practitioners don’t understand this simple connection between musculoskeletal dysfunction and shoulder problems. They are not taught about it in school and are not trained to treat it in their residencies. Physical therapists are both knowledgeable and equipped to treat shoulder dysfunction and heal your shoulder.

Our bodies are actually designed to heal themselves.  But in order to do so, they must have the correct environment for healing. The root dysfunction must be removed for the body to heal.  This Is where we come in….

At Superior Physical Therapy, we specialize in helping people find out the ROOT CAUSE of their shoulder pain.  So before seeking out medications, injections, or surgery, I urge you to give us a call. We can help you heal, give you the tools you need to stay healthy and stay out of the doctor’s office or hospital!
