Shoulder Pain

Life Can Be Tough When Your Shoulder Isn’t Working Properly

Typical Shoulder Problems

Shoulder pain and discomfort can adversely affects a person’s quality of life.  It is the most common complaint seen by General Practitioners (GP) and Primary Care Providers. Shoulder pain can be the result of an accident, an athletic injury or simply lifting something heavy, sleeping the wrong way or household chores, especially repetitive ones.

Whether you have damaged your rotator cuff because you were a little too overzealous at touch football with your friends on Sunday, or you are sore from trying to weed the garden and paint the garage in one afternoon, physical therapy can help. It is our aim to provide you with the information and therapy to help you recover from a shoulder injury and to prevent future injuries from occurring.

How Treatment Can Help

Working with a Physical Therapist can be beneficial to reducing your ankle pain. When it comes to treating ankle pain there are numerous treatment options. Treatment will be dependent on the type of injury, pain and other factors of the individual such as age, weight, and type of work, recreational activities and general health. Therapy will help to overcome or lessen the pain and symptoms and help improve your general fitness and muscle strength, through specific exercises tailored to your condition and individual needs.

Oasis Physical Therapy also offers Hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is the process of conducting exercise in a warm-water pool. The water supports your weight and therefore puts less pressure on your muscles and joints.
