Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder issues tend to happen most frequently when there is a tear or tendinitis. Conditions relating to the rotator cuff, arthritis, or injuries such as shoulder dislocation can occur.
Shoulder injuries from auto accidents and sports shoulder injuries can be a common occurrence, and may be treated at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation.
The rotator cuff tendons provide stability to the shoulder; the muscles allow the shoulder to rotate. Each muscle of the rotator cuff inserts at the scapula, and has a tendon that attaches to the humerus. Together, the tendons and other tissues form a cuff around the humerus. Over time and through aging it is possible to wear these tendons out causing sprains, strains, tendonitis or even tears.
Shoulder pain can be especially difficult to deal with because it affects so many daily tasks. Our doctors will attempt to get you away from the cycle of having to use pain medications as a temporary solution that unfortunately can have negative long term effects. They will encourage healthier healing habits including moderate rest, ice, acupuncture, and physical therapy.
Forked River Physical Therapy for Shoulder Pain
Physical therapy for shoulder injuries can be especially effective in bringing back up a patient’s range of motion, especially when paired with our other services like laser therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture.
After receiving shoulder surgery 6 years ago, one patient began feeling pain again a few months ago. It was affecting her ability to do day to day tasks like putting on a jacket. Now that she regularly comes to MPR for physical therapy, plus laser and chiropractic, her range of motion is back up. “When my shoulder pain came back, I started seeing a chiropractor elsewhere, but that alone wasn’t enough. Having everything all in one place at Monmouth Pain has made it easy for me to get treatment, and these first few months here have really helped me.” If you’re seeking post-surgical recovery – even if it’s years later! – the Forked River physical therapy team at MPR can create a custom treatment plan for you.
Forked River Acupuncture for Shoulder Pain
Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation offers acupuncture in Forked River to help with shoulder pain. Acupuncture is about using the body’s natural flows and processes to achieve balance. It promotes blood flow which delivers nutrients, oxygen, and anti-inflammatories to affected areas of the body. Acupuncture also helps to relax the mind and body by sending signals to the brain to release the body’s innate painkillers.
