Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can have a profound impact on every aspect of a person’s life, including their ability to sleep.

When pain disrupts sleep patterns, it not only leads to physical discomfort but also affects mental well-being and overall quality of life. The inability to get restful sleep can leave individuals feeling fatigued, irritable, and unable to function optimally during the day.

Moreover, the persistent pain and lack of sleep can take a toll on work performance, leading to decreased productivity and absenteeism.

Furthermore, shoulder pain can limit one’s ability to engage in social activities and enjoy time with friends and family. Simple tasks like lifting objects, reaching overhead, or even hugging loved ones can become painful and challenging. This can lead to feelings of isolation and frustration, as individuals may feel unable to participate fully in activities they once enjoyed.

At Highland Physical Therapy, Kimberly recognizes the far-reaching effects of shoulder pain and works diligently to alleviate symptoms and improve overall quality of life for her patients. Through a holistic approach to rehabilitation, she helps individuals regain function, restore mobility, and reclaim their lives from the grip of shoulder pain.

It often stems from issues with the rotator cuff, a group of muscles that play a crucial role in stabilizing the shoulder joint during movement. Due to the frequent use of the shoulder in daily activities such as driving and working, the rotator cuff muscles are susceptible to strain and injury. These strains can manifest as small tears in the rotator cuff, leading to discomfort and a limited range of motion.

Fortunately, physical therapy can be highly effective in addressing rotator cuff injuries, providing relief from pain and preventing the need for surgery. Kimberly and her team at Highland Physical Therapy specialize in designing treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs and goals. Through targeted exercises, manual therapy techniques, and modalities such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation, they help patients strengthen the rotator cuff muscles, improving shoulder mobility, and alleviate pain.
