Shoulder Pain Relief

Don't Let Shoulder Pain Stop You

Shoulder pain can be a major annoyance and have a severe impact on quality of life. Oftentimes these problems are brought on by injuries that lead to tears, dislocations, and other pains that then grow in size if left untreated and ultimately exposed to everyday life. People in Manhattan with shoulder pain may find that as time goes on these injuries will continue to disrupt their daily activities more and more, making it harder to do their job, play sports, or even something as simple as picking up their children. If shoulder pain persists, it is extremely important to address these problems immediately and it is advised to seek professional help from specialists like those at Move Well MD. This will allow for an accurate diagnosis, treatment options tailored to the individual, and the best chance for restoration of shoulder health and function.

What TO Know Before You GO

Medical science calls the shoulder joint a synovial ball and socket mechanism. Simply put, a ball on the end of the arm bone, called the humerus, rests inside a cavity on the shoulder blade. The loose connection allows for fluid arm movement – that’s what’s behind that perfect tennis serve, for example. Around the ball is a capsule of tissue made of tendon that improves movement by reducing the friction between the two bony components of the joint. Combined with the connective tissue and bursa, the capsule gives the arm a 360-degree range of motion. Shoulder Pain Relief Nyc Shoulder Pain Specialists Nyc

Pain is the body’s warning system that something isn’t working right. The infrastructure of the shoulder joint is somewhat complex and anything that breaks down within it can cause pain. Dr. Gruen and the movement specialists at Move Well MD work together to translate that warning sign and figure out what it means based on the type pain and location of it.

Sometimes, it’s not the actual joint causing the pain, either. Referred pain in the shoulder comes from another structure in the chest such as the heart or gallbladder. Generally speaking, pain coming directly from injury to the joint tends to get worse with movement while referred pain persists whether you are moving or not.

Some common sources of true joint pain include:

  • Bursitis
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sprain
  • Strains
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Tendonitis

Any of these problems can cause inflammation and pain.

Frozen shoulder is a consequence of not moving the joint for a long period of time, for example, due to a stroke. This is why many stroke patients undergo rehab to treat or prevent frozen shoulder.

Frozen shoulder occurs in three stages:

  • Freezing
  • Frozen
  • Thawing

The freezing stage is the onset, so there is the pain in the joint and limited range of motion. During the frozen stage, the pain decreases but the shoulder is still and the arm barely moves. Thawing starts during rehab as the range of motion increases.

Frozen shoulder is just one of a number of problems that respond well to physical therapy, stem cell therapy and other treatment options available at Move Well MD.

Dr. Ben and the staff are the best I feel like Family every time i come to the office. My first visit to the office was almost 2 years ago because of a sever neck crank during sparring i couldn't look to my right for almost 2 weeks. So I tried Move Well for relief because it was in the area and thank goodness I did. After the first visit I already had almost full range and mobility of my neck.
