Shoulder Pain

"How To Put An End To Shoulder Pain Without Waiting Forever For A Doctor's Appointment, Or Taking A Pile Of Pills."

When it comes to living a life with Shoulder pain, every person that comes to see us wants to know:

"Why is This Happening"


"Why, After 6 Or More Months, Am I Still Suffering From Shoulder Pain? I Don't Want To Put Up With It Anymore."

Most people imagine that when they get Shoulder pain, that the pain is going to go away by itself magically. That they will roll out of bed one morning, and it will be as if it never hurt, to begin with. But there they are 6 months later, still dealing with this same annoying pain; only it might even be worse than when it started.

Does that sound familiar?

Something else that we often see here at Cardin & Miller Physical Therapy is that someone goes to see their Doctor, the Doctor tells them to rest, and if it gets too bad, "try these painkillers," watch it and see how it goes. Then 4-6 weeks later, they are back in the same office because they are still in pain, nothing improved, only to be given more pain killers, and the possibility of shots; and the cycle continues.

Is This Something That Has Happened To You?

Perhaps you're confused? Maybe you've been told many different things by a bunch of different people. Perhaps you don't think that it's your Shoulder that’s the problem, but it's really your Neck? It's a complicated part of the body to figure what exactly the problem is, which often leads to putting off dealing with it entirely. The worst part, sometimes people decide to accept this pain as a part of life. They go on just “putting up” with the pain until they begin to notice they can’t sleep or preform what they need to do because of it.

Is that how you're feeling?

If You're Currently Struggling With Shoulder Pain, Here Are A Couple More Reasons Why It Could Be Taking Longer To Feel Better Than It Should:

  • You hoped it would magically go away without doing anything. It didn't.
  • You went to see your family Doctor who told you to try resting it and gave you a prescription for pain killers, but the pills didn't do a thing to correct the issue, and when they wore off, your Shoulder was back to being as painful as it was before.
  • Someone you trust told you that Shoulder pain is something everyone must deal with the older they get; that the pain is just a part of life, and you believed them.
  • You visited another Physical Therapist before, and what they did didn't seem to help.
  • You kept hoping that using a heating pad or an ice pack would make the pain go away, but it didn’t.
  • You decided it was a good idea to rest your Shoulder when the pain was horrible, but now it has only ended up bothering you more frequently.
  • You thought that getting massages would help, and while they helped you relax and worked out some of the tissue tightness, they didn't do anything to fix the problem long term.

If any of this sounds like what you've been experiencing – we would love to help! All you have to do is schedule a Free Phone Consulation with one of our expert Physical Therapists and have a chat to figure out how we can help you. The fact that you've tried some or all of these things before only means we know what doesn’t work. We are so much closer to figuring out what does.

Something else people ask us often is:

"What Can You Do To Get Rid Of This Shoulder Pain?"

Here are 4 things you CAN do:

  • First, you need to make the choice about getting help. So many people procrastinate for months at a time, hoping that the pain will just magically go away, but then, there they, are 6 months down the road still having the same pain or the pain is even worse.
  • Next, do the correct exercises. One of the most helpful things to ease the pain in your Shoulder is to do the right set of exercises, which are given to you by a Physical Therapist. These exercises will help reduce your pain and allow you to move fully and freely. They will also help make sure that the problems don't return.
  • Try not sitting or sleeping in awkward positions. Have you ever woken up with Shoulder pain? Or have you spent the day sitting, which resulted in tight Shoulders? It's because bad posture and sleeping in awkward positions can add up to terrible Shoulder pain. Getting appropriate exercises to strengthen your muscles for better posture is really helpful in the effort of getting rid of the pain. In addition to hands-on treatment, you can get you back to being healthy as quickly as possible.
  • You can get real Physical Therapy. Physical Therapy has proven to help people who suffer with Shoulder pain. As a matter of fact, at Cardin & Miller Physical Therapy, Shoulder pain is one of the most common issues we treat. If your Shoulder pain is affecting your work performance, or disrupting your sleep, or if your Shoulder pain threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending time with those you love – Physical Therapy can help you get back to doing the things you need, want, and LOVE to do AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE!
