Here is what you need to know about shoulder pain and the available treatment options.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
In the case of an acute injury, like a fracture or sprain, pain will appear in the area of the injury and usually resolve as the injury heals. However, it is more common for shoulder pain to occur as the result of wear and tear, leading to a degenerative problem, like arthritis, tendonitis, or bursitis. These conditions usually get worse over time without treatment, causing pain that may escalate to the point of preventing you from lifting your arm or otherwise using your shoulder. Pain, stiffness, and the feeling of bone rubbing on bone are all common symptoms with shoulder injuries.
Shoulder Pain Treatment
The first step in shoulder pain treatment is to determine the cause of the symptoms. Dr. Weinberg and the Active Health team of multidisciplinary providers will pinpoint the triggers for your shoulder pain so that they can tailor the treatments specifically to your needs. Typically, patients get the best benefits from an integrated approach to care that combines therapies to get results.
At Active Health, our shoulder pain treatments in North Palm Beach include gentle chiropractic care, ultrasound, electrotherapy, cold laser therapy, and corrective exercise.
