Physical therapy is a treatment program that helps reduce pain and increase mobility. If you have shoulder pain or mobility issues, physical therapy can be an important part of your overall pain management strategy. It can even help keep your shoulder condition from getting worse. Pain and mobility issues in your shoulders can make it difficult to perform every day activities, like getting dressed, reaching something up high, or putting something in your back pocket. If you’re having trouble with any activities because of shoulder pain or mobility issues, your doctor may recommend physical therapy.
A physical therapy program is managed by a physical therapist who is a highly educated and trained medical professional, focused on treating different injuries, diseases, and conditions that cause pain and mobility issues. They can also help patients during the recovery process after a surgical procedure, like shoulder replacement.
