They offer customized physical therapy programs and personalized wellness services to improve and preserve your joint mobility. Through exercises and advanced therapeutic treatments, you can find relief from your pain and enjoy an increased range of motion in your shoulder. To find out more about available treatments for shoulder pain, call Apex Wellness or book an appointment online today.
Your shoulder is made up of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones that give you a wide range of motion. Because of the complexity of the joint, your shoulder is at risk for injuries from overuse, dislocation, and trauma from physical activity.
The most common causes of shoulder pain include:
Rotator cuff tears
You may also develop shoulder pain from fractures in your shoulder joint or impingement, a condition that develops when your shoulder blade puts pressure on the soft tissues underneath when you move your arm.
When you have reduced range of motion or chronic pain in your shoulder, Dr. Jones and Dr. Patel design a physical therapy program to stretch and strengthen the muscles that support your joint.
By strengthening these muscles, you can stabilize your shoulder joint to prevent dislocations, muscle tears, and other injuries.
You may also benefit from at-home exercises that help you keep your shoulder flexible and improve your blood circulation in the joint.
Apex Wellness provides additional wellness services to keep you pain-free and enhance your overall health.
Wellness services focus on helping you develop a realistic plan to improve all areas of your health. Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones provide personalized:
Stress management services
Supervised weight management programs
Wellness services not only complement your physical therapy program, but they can also reduce your risk factors for a number of chronic health conditions, including Type 2 diabetes, and musculoskeletal injuries, which can come from your job, sports participation, or your usual activities.
You can also learn how to modify your lifestyle and diet to maintain a healthy weight and reduce your risk for chronic inflammation and diseases that can affect your joints.
If it’s becoming increasingly difficult to lift your arm or move your shoulder without pain, schedule a consultation at Apex Wellness online or by phone today.
