Ease Your Shoulder Pain Today!

Do you know that various factors can lead to shoulder pain? This can range from temporary or slight muscle discomfort to severe bone-on-bone friction, and other conditions. It can show up when you suddenly wake up, reach for your glasses in the morning, or even toss around at night trying to find a comfortable sleeping position. This pain can be a dull or persistent ache that stays with you throughout the day. In some cases, it can come up due to injury.

Your shoulder has two joints on each side, and they are collectively called the ball and socket joints. This makes it the most flexible joint in the body due to its wide range of movement. The ball and socket joint of the shoulder is held in place by a group of muscles called the Rotator-Cuff Muscles. When your shoulder or surrounding muscles experience any discomfort, pain occurs.

If you reside in Edmonton or its nearby surroundings and are suffering from any form of shoulder problems, kindly reach out to Granville Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic to get your shoulder diagnosed and begin the approach therapeutic treatment needed to restore your shoulder to its proper state. 

Shoulder pain can arise from various causes ranging from muscle-related causes to bone-related causes. Here are a few reasons why your shoulder could be causing you pain.

1.Trauma
Trauma is one of the leading causes of shoulder pain. A fall on outstretched arms or even the shoulder itself is powerful enough to deliver quite a significant amount of pain. Also, bumping into a hard object with your shoulder or dislocation can cause serious pain. Carrying heavy objects like furniture while moving can pull the muscles of the shoulder and cause pain.

2.Infection
Tendinitis, Bursitis, and even arthritis are examples of inflammatory responses that can cause pain in your shoulder. They are usually accompanied by swelling of the affected area.

3.Posture
It is no news that having a bad posture can put you at risk of pain in various parts of your body. Your sleeping and sitting posture can put undue strain on your shoulder and, thus, cause pain.

4.Referred Pain
Pain from your neck and your back can spread to your shoulder and leave you in discomfort.

If this is your story, then there is hope for you. Granville Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic is committed to giving you the best treatment for any shoulder pain-related issues you may have.

Physical therapy exists to do two things: ease your pain and return function to the affected area. As opposed to surgical and medical intervention, physical therapy is a non-invasive method of pain treatment that is easy and comfortable. Depending on the cause of your pain, exercises like stretching, strengthening, mobility movements, stabilization, and even temperature-based treatment methods may be used. Your physical therapist will collaborate with you to create a routine that will gradually help to restore the quality of your life. Some studies prove that physical therapy alone is capable of eliminating shoulder pain completely.

At Granville Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic, we use personalized physical therapy treatment to provide the most effective treatment to ease shoulder pain. Our physical therapists are well-experienced in treating different forms of shoulder pain using therapeutic techniques. They will find the root cause of your pain using specific diagnostic approaches and other physical/orthopedic examinations, such as moving your shoulder and neck, and checking your range of motion, posture, and possible structural damage. After completing your assessment, they will recommend a personalized treatment plan to ease your pain and symptoms. This plan will include manual techniques, specific movements, and other therapeutic modalities. As your treatment process, your physical therapist may remodify your treatment plan to help focus more on recovery and strengthening the shoulder and its surrounding musculoskeletal structure.

We believe that no treatment is complete without educating patients on the specific techniques and strategies to prevent the reoccurrence of shoulder pain or discomfort sooner or later. 

You need to check with your health insurance provider to know if the cost of physical therapy is included in your insurance policy. You also need to get a referral letter from your physician for ease of documentation.

If your insurance policy doesn’t cover physical therapy, you don’t need to be afraid. Our rates are very fair, and we offer financial aid to qualified candidates in need.
