Shoulder Rehabilitation

The shoulder is one of the most common joints in the body which can develop pain. One reason for this vulnerability is the extreme amount of potential motion in the shoulder. It has more movement compared to any other joint in the body. To allow for this wide range of movement the shoulder must rely on an intricate muscle system. This system relates directly to the shoulder, shoulder blade, and upper back/ribs. The potential for developing muscle imbalances is quite strong and so this is the primary reason for the many potential problems related to sports, repetitive motion, and postural strain. In addition, the arm is part of our protective mechanism, so any fall will be “broken” with our arm reaching out. Physical therapy and the shoulder go very well together since most functional recoveries will require following the appropriate steps to restore motion and build the necessary postural and shoulder strength. This is why nearly all shoulder injuries and surgeries will requires some degree of rehabilitation since these steps will not usually happen on their own.
