How PT can help your Recovery from a Shoulder Injury

Shoulder injuries are common among athletes and individuals who perform repetitive overhead activities.

These injuries can range from mild strains to severe rotator cuff tears, and they can significantly impact your daily activities. Physical therapy is an essential part of the recovery process, and Apex physical therapy can help you get back to your normal routine faster.

Here are some reasons why physical therapy is crucial after a shoulder injury:

Reduce Pain and Swelling

Shoulder injuries can cause significant pain and swelling, which can limit your range of motion. Physical therapy can help reduce pain and swelling by using various techniques such as ice, heat, and ultrasound therapy. Apex physical therapy can customize a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific injury and needs.

Improve Range of Motion

After a shoulder injury, you may experience limited range of motion, making it difficult to perform simple tasks such as reaching overhead or lifting objects. Physical therapy can help improve your range of motion by using exercises that focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles surrounding your shoulder joint.

Prevent Re-Injury

Physical therapy can help prevent re-injury by teaching you proper techniques for performing daily activities that involve your shoulder. Apex physical therapy can provide you with a personalized plan that includes exercises and stretches to strengthen your shoulder and improve your posture.

Avoid Surgery

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair a severe shoulder injury. However, physical therapy can often help avoid surgery by strengthening the muscles around your shoulder joint and improving your range of motion. Apex physical therapy can work with you to develop a treatment plan that can help you avoid surgery and get back to your normal activities faster.
