Relieving Shoulder Pain
Physical Therapy of the shoulder targets the smaller, but important muscles that are commonly neglected. By strengthening these muscles, we can help balance the forces on the shoulder to improve the motion and mechanics of the shoulder joint. At Comber Physical Therapy and Fusion Chiropractic, our physical therapists train and educate patients in important pain management techniques and exercises. These can greatly accelerate recovery times, reduce pain and swelling and prevent recurrence of pain.

Why Does My Shoulder Hurt?
The simple motion of raising your arm overhead is not as simple as it seems. The many muscles that control your shoulder blade, collarbone and arm all need to work together to create smooth, pain-free motion. When some of the muscles become weak and others too strong, this can gradually change the motion and cause pain. If you fall and injure your shoulder and suddenly develop shoulder pain, seek help immediately. Shoulder pain can result in restricted movement of your body.
Headaches, tightness in the neck and decreased range of motion are common problems from shoulder pain. You may notice problems such as trouble sleeping, aching pain at the end of the day or with prolonged sitting, headaches and even pains into your back or arms.
Knowing the right course of treatment will reduce your shoulder pain. That is why Comber Physical Therapy and Fusion Chiropractic can help you on the road towards a new future without shoulder pain and get you feeling back to your normal self again.
