You Don’t Need to Suffer in Pain – There’s a Shoulder Specialist in Armonk that’s Just a Phone Call Away

Is persistent shoulder pain limiting your range of motion? Does stretching or lifting your arm over your head aggravate the problem? ProClinix Sports Physical Therapy & Chiropractic Wellness has a skilled shoulder specialist in Armonk ready to help.

Before you commit to invasive procedures or surgical interventions consider a conservative and customized program of hands-on therapy, therapeutic exercises, functional retraining, and appropriate progressive strength training designed to promote healing, minimize discomfort and increase mobility.

The shoulder is a large and complex joint enveloped by muscles and tendons, thus very susceptible to injury from trauma or overuse. Ignoring shoulder pain can result in serious problems. It is important to address any unusual pain or discomfort as soon as possible.

The licensed and experienced clinicians at ProClinix, treat a myriad of conditions such as frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, arthritis , bursitis and rotator cuff injuries.

Here are some detailed information about the conditions we regularly treat:

In frozen shoulder, the shoulder capsule thickens and becomes tight. Stiff bands of tissue — called adhesions — develop. In many cases, there is less synovial fluid in the joint.
The hallmark sign of this condition is being unable to move your shoulder – either on your own or with the help of someone else.

The rotator cuffis a common source of pain in the shoulder. Pain can be the result of:

– Tendinitis. The rotator cuff tendons can be irritated or damaged.
– Bursitis. The bursa can become inflamed and swell with more fluid causing pain.
– Impingement. When you raise your arm to shoulder height, the space between the acromion and rotator cuff narrows. The acromion can rub against (or “impinge” on) the tendon and the bursa, causing irritation and pain.

Arthritis
Shoulder pain can also result from arthritis. There are many types of arthritis. The most common type of arthritis in the shoulder is osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis. Symptoms, such as swelling, pain, and stiffness, typically begin during middle age. Osteoarthritis develops slowly and the pain it causes worsens over time.
