Shoulder Injury Rehabilitation Q & A

How does shoulder injury rehabilitation help with recovery?

Physical therapy is the most natural, effective method of relieving pain and restoring mobility after a sports injury involving your shoulder. It’s common for athletes to injure the shoulder muscles, tendons, and ligaments, as they can easily shift out of place during forceful or repetitive arm movements. Specific physical therapy exercises and other treatments stretch muscles, build strength, and restore mobility to your shoulder joint after an injury without invasive surgery or prescription medications.

Which conditions benefit from shoulder injury rehab?

Numerous shoulder injuries and conditions respond well to the advanced physical therapies the team at All Sports Physical Therapy offers, including:
