Joint Spine Rehabilitation, offers physical therapy and chiropractic services in Waldwick. We also have a chiropractor on staff that can assist with the recovery process as well as help relieve the pain of shoulder injuries via natural means. We treat shoulder injuries and conditions such as instability, impingement syndrome, dislocation, fractures, tendonitis and labral tears. We also assist patients with a post-surgical repair.
A type of shoulder injury we treat at Joint and Spine Rehab is called instability. Instability causes shoulder pain because the joints in the shoulder are moving or are being forced out of place. If you suffer from this condition, you’ll notice pain rising in your arm.
Impingement syndrome comes from the excessive rubbing of the shoulder muscles on the top portion of the shoulder blade. Generally, impingement stems from repetitive overhead arm motions. You’ll notice you have inflammation from this particular condition.
Two forms of shoulder tendinitis include swimmer’s shoulder and pitcher’s shoulder. Tendinitis occurs when a tendon in the shoulder becomes irritated or inflamed. You may experience pain and tenderness surrounding the affected joint.
ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES
The rotator cuff is a vital component of the shoulder. It has muscles and tendons that are responsible for holding the bones in the shoulder together. This particular muscle allows you to lift your arm up. Strains, sprains, and tears are some of the most common shoulder injuries.
We offer treatments for post-surgical repair and help you in the recovery process with services such as exercise therapy. Our specialist will guide you through exercises to reduce your pain and help increase flexion and range of motion in your shoulder at a pace that’s comfortable for you.
The shoulder is susceptible to dislocation because it’s the body’s most mobile joint. A dislocated shoulder occurs when the upper arm bone pops out of the socket in the shoulder blade.
A tear in the muscle or soft tissue is another example of a shoulder injury. Labral tears, also known as SLAP tears, are tears in the labrum of the shoulder. The labrum is the ring of cartilage surrounding the socket of the shoulder joint.
Arthritis refers to inflammation of the joints. Certain types of arthritis tend to affect the shoulder including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Arthritis can hinder your ability to move your shoulder, but our treatments will help you regain both function and flexion in your shoulder while alleviating your pain.
Although our chiropractic treatment doesn’t correct damaged bone, we do offer other pain relief methods with our other specialists for this particular condition.
