Shoulder Injuries & Treatment

shoulder injury LaytonFrom lifting heavy items to falling the wrong way, it is easy for your shoulder to sustain an injury. Whether you pulled something because you were lifting more than your body could handle or you work out regularly and your shoulder is hurting from general wear, Layton Physical Therapy and Sport Medicine is here to help.

Shoulder injuries and shoulder pain can be very debilitating because you use your arms for so much of your daily activity. If your shoulder is in pain, it will make the things you love to do more difficult. However, if you see a physical therapist the moment that the pain sets in, you can ensure a better recovery.

Common Shoulder Pain

As mentioned before, your shoulders are vulnerable to injuries from many types of activity. Even day-to-day actions can result in shoulder injuries if you are not careful. When patients with shoulder pain come to our office, they commonly have one of the following injuries or conditions:

  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • Dislocation
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Impingement syndrome
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Ligament tears
  • General muscle strain

With a combination of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise programs, Layton Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine can help rehabilitate your shoulder and get you back to the activities you love to do.

We Aim for Complete Recovery

Oftentimes, when someone starts physical therapy, they don’t complete the entire program that the physical therapist customized for them. The problem with this is that, if you don’t complete the program, you might not get back the full range of motion in your shoulder that you once had.

Because we want you to recover fully after a shoulder injury or shoulder surgery, we recommend completing the individualized program that our physical therapist and/or sports medicine specialist created for you.

If you have had a shoulder injury, have shoulder pain, or have recently had shoulder surgery, come to Layton Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine for a fuller, quicker recovery process. Call us today at (801)-896-9624!
