Shoulder Injury Rehabilitation

, ,

Physical Therapy Clinic near Atlanta GAThe shoulder is the most complicated joint in the body to rehabilitate because of its complex nature and the fact that it has more mobility and speed than any other joint. Shoulder problems and injuries can develop from everyday wear and tear on the joint, overuse of the joint, injury to the shoulder, or simply from the natural process of aging. Every time you move your arm, your shoulder moves. Because the shoulder is a ball and socket joint, it is designed to move easily. Because of its mobility, it is more likely to be injured or cause problems than almost any other joint in the body. Shoulder problems can be minor or serious, and at Sovereign Rehabilitation we offer physical and rehabilitation therapy to treat shoulder injuries. We specialize in helping patients with shoulder injuries recover fully and as quickly as possible.

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.

Rotator Cuff Injury

, ,

Rotator Cuff Treatment in Atlanta GAThe group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint to keep the upper arm bone firmly within the socket of the shoulder is known as the rotator cuff. Injury to the rotator cuff most often occurs in those who repeatedly use their arms above their heads. Painters, carpenters, and those who play baseball and tennis are prime candidates for rotator cuff injuries. Those who suffer from a rotator cuff injury often require physical therapy to improve flexibility and strength of the surrounding muscles of the shoulder joint. For those who have had to undergo surgery for rotator cuff repair, physical therapy is also needed to rehabilitate the joint and muscles.

The premier physical, manual, and occupational therapists at Sovereign Rehabilitation are committed to helping patients recover from rotator cuff surgery and find relief from rotator cuff injuries. Exercises can help restore strength and flexibility in the shoulder to promote healing and function. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our treatment programs are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient. The goal of our rotator cuff injury rehabilitation program is to treat the injury while also preventing further injury from occurring.
