PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR SHOULDER PAIN

Shoulder is a complex structure, allowing almost 360 degrees of movement while stabilizing your arm for any activity, from making your coffee in the morning to pitching at over 100 mph. This is achieved with the combined activity of multiple ligaments and muscles working together like a well oiled machine. It’s strength is also its weakness, because the excess motion it provides, also makes it susceptible to injuries. Structurally, shoulder is connected to the scapula (shoulder blade) through the acromioclavicular joint and rib cage through the sternoclavicular joint and scapulothoracic articulation.​​
