The shoulder is the most complicated joint in the body and has to move through an incredible range of motion while maintaining strength and support. The shoulder is formed by the union of the humerus (upper arm bone), the scapula (shoulder blade) and the clavicle (collarbone). Shoulder pain can occur for a variety of reasons, but is typically from poor posture, weakness of rotator cuff muscles, or injury.
Since the shoulder motions are so complex, it takes experts in movement analysis to truly understand the root cause of your problem. Our expert physical therapists at Nebraska Orthopaedic Physical Therapy have years of medical training in movement analysis to determine exactly where your pain is coming from. We put together a comprehensive treatment plan that will quickly relieve your pain and return your shoulder to its full range of motion.
