Shoulder Pain Treatment PTConcepts

Shoulder pain can stop you from doing what you love, whether that’s playing a sport or simply cooking a meal for your family. Whether you are dealing with injury-related discomfort or a chronic condition, our physical therapy services at PTConcepts in Texas can help heal your shoulder pain naturally. 

What are the causes of shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain can have a variety of sources, as it is typically a symptom and not the actual underlying issue. Many injuries cause severe shoulder pain, such as torn rotator cuffs, sprains, impingement, and dislocation. 

There are also several disorders that count shoulder pain as a common symptom, like rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and avascular necrosis (degenerating tissue due to poor circulation). Your physical therapist will be able to determine the exact source of your shoulder pain. 

How can physical therapy help?

Shoulder pain is notorious for limiting mobility and general functionality. You may find it difficult to raise your arms and complete simple tasks when your shoulder is acting up. Physical therapy not only works on reducing your pain, it also strengthens the muscles and increases the flexibility of the affected area. When you give your shoulder the correct support, you can reduce your current discomfort and even prevent future injuries or flare-ups. A standard physical therapy session involves several exercises, although your therapist may also perform light manual or hands-on therapy to promote muscle recovery. 

Why should I choose PTConcepts?

All five of our PTConcepts locations boast cutting-edge technology and expert physical therapists, allowing you to receive the highest standard of personalized care. Not all injuries are the same, so why should your treatment plan be cookie-cutter? We use a wide variety of techniques to help you recover, including dry needling with or without electrical stimulation, active release technique (ART), instrument assisted soft tissue techniques like Graston and FAKTR, cupping, blood flow restriction techniques and more.

Your physical therapist at PTConcepts will create a customized regimen of exercises that are tailored to your exact injury or disorder. You will be able to improve your range of motion, flexibility, and strength, all while working to reduce your shoulder pain.
