Leg Pain

, ,

Atlanta Physical TherapistsLeg pain can be caused by a variety of factors and can become debilitating when not treated effectively and in an appropriate amount of time. When the RICE method of rest, ice, compression, and elevation are not proving effective at home it is important to seek professional treatment. Chronic leg pain can be a sign of significant injury to a muscle, tendon, or bone or can occur as a result of different medical conditions. Depending on the cause of the pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling sensations can also accompany the leg pain, causing a debilitating issue. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our certified manual and physical therapists specialize in helping patients with leg pain find long term relief.

Lumbosacral Neuritis

, ,

Atlanta Physical TherapyLumbosacral neuritis is the inflammation of the spinal nerves in the lower back. The lower back contains the lumbar vertebrae where a number of different spinal nerves are located. Inflammation in these nerves can cause low back pain, and it can also cause pain to travel the length of the nerves as they continue down the legs. There are different causes of lumbosacral neuritis, but essentially it is the irritation of the nerve fibers within the spinal canal that causes people to suffer pain and discomfort. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we offer patients exceptional orthopedic care provided by the industry’s premier therapists. The goal of our rehabilitation program is to help patients with lumbosacral neuritis find long-term pain relief, improved function, and a higher quality of life.

Rotator Cuff Pain

, ,

Physical TherapistsPain and weakness in the shoulder are often indicators of a rotator cuff disorder. Discomfort or the inability to perform everyday activities such as reaching above the head, brushing or washing hair, tucking in a shirt, or picking up a small child are all signs that the rotator cuff has been injured. Pain is typically located in the front or on the side of the upper arm and shoulder, and is almost always exacerbated when making overhead movements. Many times people who experience this pain tend to “favor” their arm, but that can cause even more stiffness and weakness in the shoulder, further promoting issues. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we offer treatment for rotator cuff pain and injury. We are a comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation company that delivers individualized rehabilitation therapy services to our patients.
