Arm Pain

Many people can suffer from overuse conditions of the elbow without even knowing, such as Tennis Elbow or Golfers Elbow. In many cases, a physical therapist can work with patients to relieve overuse conditions without resorting to surgical options. 

For the first 48 hours after the pain starts, patients should:

  • Rest their arm and avoid using it if at all possible
  • Ice the elbow for 10-20 minutes at a time
  • Use wraps or gause to tighten around the joint and increase stability

The physical therapist will examine your elbow and decide if you should use a brace. Your physical therapist will then work with you by having you perform special exercises, along with any other therapies they feel appropriate for the elbow

Epidural Steroid Injections

Steroidal medication injected into a painful joint space can help soothe pain in arthritic joints. Injecting corticosteroids into an arthritic joint will not provide permanent relief on its own,  it can dramatically reduce inflammation and pain. The effects can last anywhere between 1 week to 1 year. Injections for joint pain are usually one of the steps taken before resorting to surgery. In some patients, steroid injections can reduce pain to the point where patients are able to participate in Physical Therapy, which in turn can strengthen the surrounding muscles and eliminate the need for further treatment.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists diagnose and treat patients with medical problems or injuries that limit their ability to take part in their daily lives. Patients will usually see a physical therapist after a referral by their primary physician. Physical therapists work with patients who have experienced an injury or disease that has affected their movement and range of motion.

Between the bones and soft tissues all throughout the human body, small fluid-filled sacs known as “Bursae” cushion impacts and help your body parts glide smoothly when moving.

If these Bursae suffer from inflammation or irritation, physicians call this condition “Bursitis”.

The subacromial bursae in the shoulder help lubricate the rotator cuff, and commonly suffer from this condition. Patients suffering from subacromial bursitis may feel stiffness and pain in the shoulder, as well as swelling, redness, soreness, which can cause difficulty sleeping.

Advanced Bursitis can completely immobilize the shoulder, leading to a condition known as “frozen shoulder.”

Our mission is to help patients to return to work, improve their quality of life, reduce dependence on medication and healthcare providers, and avoid persistent injuries.
