Shoulder Pain and Arm Pain 

Shoulder Pain and Arm Pain Treatment in Nashville, TN

Steve Kravitz Physical Therapy

During my first pregnancy I was not able to use my right arm and I was in constant pain, to the point of not being able to sleep, brush my teeth or write. Not only was Steve able to relieve my pain and restore function to my arm he managed my condition throughout my second pregnancy. Thanks to Steve I never lost function in my arm and did not suffer from the same debilitating pain. Within a few weeks after my son was born any tingling or weakness was completely gone. Steve is also extremely knowledgeable about how a woman’s body shifts during pregnancy and how to help everything from back pain to swelling.

●      Symptoms -

Shoulders get their range of motion from the rotator cuff, which is made up of four tendons. These tendons are the tissues that connect your muscles to your bones, so you may have experienced pain or difficulty lifting your arm over your head if the tendons or bones around your rotator cuff are damaged or swollen. Depending on the cause, these symptoms may start suddenly and go away or it may increase gradually.

  • Common Shoulder Pain Causes

There are a number of factors that can influence shoulder pain, although the most common is rotator cuff tendonitis. In some cases, shoulder pain is the outcome of an injury to another location in your body, typically in the neck or bicep. Pain can also occur in your shoulder as you grow older, particularly after the age of 60. This is because the soft tissues surrounding your shoulder tend to degenerate with age. Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body, so when something goes wrong, it can restrict your ability to move freely and cause a great deal of discomfort. As a result, this can allow restriction of movement in your arms as well.
