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.

IT Band Syndrome

 

Category: IT Band Syndrome, Orthopedic and Sports Therapy

Atlanta Physical TherapistsIliotibial Band Syndrome, more commonly referred to as IT Band Syndrome, is a common overuse injury that occurs among runners and those who are particularly active with high intensity movements. The Iliotibial band runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the shin, just below the knee joint. This band attaches to the knee and functions in coordination with several thigh muscles to help stabilize the joint for proper movement. Iliotibial band syndrome is caused by inflammation of the IT band. During flexion and extension of the knee, the IT band rubs over the thigh bone, leading to irritation. When the band is inflamed, it does not glide easily over the thigh bone and pain is felt during movement of the knee.
