The shoulder joint is necessary for a large majority of arm movement in daily activities and sports. The shoulder is made up of three bones: the clavicle, scapula, and humerus. Unfortunately, the shoulder is one of the most unstable joints of the body and extremely vulnerable to a wide variety of injuries.

Treatment for Shoulder Injuries

There is no “one size fits all” treatment for a shoulder injury, however Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (RICE) is often recommended at first to promote healing. Depending on the severity and specific injury of the shoulder, a treatment plan will be developed by the expert physical therapists at JAG Physical Therapy. Your physical therapist will develop a series of exercises to strengthen the muscles around the shoulder, aiming to improve the strength and mobility of the shoulder.
