One of the most common injuries seen in our office is shoulder pain.
In fact, shoulder pain occurs in 50% of the population. Patients present with shoulder pain for a variety of reasons, some patients develop shoulder pain over time, and others have neck and upper back pain which is coming from a shoulder injury. Shoulder pain is treated in multiple ways, but the most important step in treating shoulder injuries is a proper and timely diagnosis.
Being seen when the shoulder pain initially begins leads to faster recovery. The Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery reported that nearly 75% of patients can avoid rotator cuff surgery by performing physical rehab. Dr. Zorn is well-educated in treating rotator cuff injuries/tears, labral tears (SLAP Tears), adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), and shoulder impingements.
Treatments for shoulder pain include ice, therapeutic manipulation, active release, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and physical rehabilitation exercises to improve mobility and rebuild strength.
