SUFFERING WITH UPPER EXTREMITY PAIN?
We Help Eliminate Arm and Shoulder Pain
If you suffer from upper extremity complaints, there is usually an underlying problem causing tissue irritation and inflammation. Many times there is a stability-mobility problem (we either have too much motion or not enough). Our functional assessment takes you through a series of movements to determine where and what the problem is, and ways to go about fixing it. Schedule a free assessment and get started before a small complaint becomes a big one.
"Your Shoulder Joint is Like a Golf Ball on a Tee."
As one of the most freely movable joints in the body, the shoulder is a common place for pain and injury to occur. If we want to have a fully functional shoulder, we must learn to use the muscles and shoulder blade appropriately to maximize joint contact (think how easy a golf ball can fall off the tee).
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain:
Rotator Cuff Injury / Tendinopathy
Nerve or Brachial Plexus Injury
Joint Capsule / Ligamentous Injury
If you have been injured or are suffering from shoulder pain, it is critical to get assessed so that the joint and tissue can heal correctly, decreasing chances of future problems.
Elbow pain, like many other problems in the body, often arises from some repetitive motion done improperly - such as typing at a computer or swinging a tennis racket. We start to have some inflammation and tissue breakdown, which worsens over time, eventually leading to symptoms like pain or numbness. In our office we like to treat the inflamed tissue to reduce pain, correct the abnormal movement, and reinforce normal movement patterns.
Common Causes of Elbow Pain:
Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow)
Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
Radial Head Subluxation (Annular Ligament)
Sprain / Strain
Without the use of our hand(s), life can be pretty difficult. If you've ever fractured your dominant hand, you know how hard it is to do basic tasks. We help identify and correct common conditions such as carpal tunnel, sprain/strain, repetitive over-use, and similar problems.
Common Causes of Wrist Pain:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Injury
Sprain / Strain
