Shoulder pain is common among us as we age. This is because the shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body performing many different functions. This joint provides support and is involved in most everyday activities. This leads the group of muscles and tendons in the shoulder to get overworked causing pain in the shoulder. When you feel shoulder pain, especially if it is recurring or is getting worse, visit our physical therapy clinic in Montclair, NJ and consult a multi-disciplinary team of physicians.
The group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint is called the rotator cuff. Disorders or injuries arise when the rotator cuff is irritated or inflamed. If it is not checked and physical therapy care is not performed, the shoulder joint is headed for trouble over-time. You will run the risk of tendinitis, bursitis or calcium build-up in the tendons, and/or a partial or complete tear of tendons. Untended shoulder pain can result in an eventual very hard time moving your shoulder. It is important to see a physical therapist and talk about ways to treat shoulder pain.
