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.

Dislocated Shoulder

Atlanta Physical TherapistsA dislocated shoulder is an injury that is caused by a fall or a blow that causes the top of the arm bone to pop out of the shoulder socket. The shoulder is prone to slipping out of place because of its incredible mobility. The arm can move in more directions than any other joint system in the body; because of this flexibility, however, a dislocated shoulder is a common injury. Sovereign Rehabilitation is a comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation company located in Atlanta, Georgia.
