    Shoulder Diagnoses and Treatment

    The loosest joint in the entire body is the shoulder. It needs to be loose because it requires a range of motion along with a degree of stability for normal functions. The shoulder is made up of a ball and socket and joint as well as a shoulder blade and collar bone.

    The ligaments, muscles and tendons around the shoulder play an important role in stabilizing and controlling a fairly complex series of movements involving the shoulder blade and collar bone.

    Signs and symptoms of shoulder problems include pain, limited motion, catching or clicking, weakness, dead-arm feeling, pins and needles, numbness, grinding and stiffness.

    Most diagnoses of the shoulder are treatable, including:

    • Tendonitis
    • Bursitis-subacromial bursitis
    • Rotator cuff tears/rupture

    Absolutely Wonderful

    Testimonial: 2018-08-27
    "Linda and her staff are absolutely wonderful. They are compassionate, caring, patient, supportive, professional and a delight to be around. Physical therapy is hard but I always looked forward to my sessions because we had fun and I knew I was receiving great care. I have a very complicated case and while seeing her after my third surgery I had to make the difficult decision to have a finger amputated.

    She was instrumental in helping me make the right decision then recover emotionally and physically from the amputation. She is very knowledgeable and explained everything to me so I understood my injury, the healing process and how each exercise would help me.

    Each patient gets one on one care every session and given a treatment plan tailored to them individually instead of just a standard set of exercises for a given injury. I highly recommend her for anyone needing hand or upper extremity physical therapy." -   Dina P
