Shoulder Pain Physical Therapy in Clifton, New Jersey

Most people don't realize the shoulder is actually a few joints that are connected with tendons and muscles, allowing for many movements in the arm. Poor posture can lead to pain where you have difficulty lifting objects or scratching your back; however, this doesn't mean it will last forever-the best thing to do if you experience any discomfort is visit Clifton Physical Therapy!

The shoulder joint in the body is incredibly complex, as it should be- given all of its duties. For example, some people may think that such a vulnerable area would also have an unstable design to compensate for this issue! But not so; one look at your arm proves just how versatile they are while remaining surprisingly resilient and stable throughout their range of motion (especially if you ignore those pesky injuries).

Your knees or neck might get more attention but no other part offers up nearly as many angles with which we can examine them under a microscope or see what happens when they're injured by studying X-rays. That's why there are patients who owe these issues to injury every day: because without healthy shoulders our arms wouldn't work properly.

Clifton Physical Therapy is a non-surgical alternative to surgery for the treatment of arm/stress dislocation. Our physical therapists will help you get back to the level of exercise and lifestyle that you are accustomed to without having to cope with your arm. We'll show you how to eliminate pain, correct the cause, and remove symptoms.
