Overuse Shoulder Injuries

Overuse Shoulder TreatmentOveruse shoulder injuries are common in active adults. Repetitive activities, particularly when poor biomechanics are present, place tremendous stress on the structures of the shoulder. People of all ages can develop shoulder pain and shoulder injuries from overuse. Adolescents who are involved in year round sports such as baseball, tennis, or swimming are also vulnerable. Many times overtraining in childhood places too much strain on young musculoskeletal systems.

Adult patients often develop shoulder injury from training too hard and not getting enough rest for the body to fully recover. Shoulder pain, soreness, shoulder weakness, and swelling are all common and many patients are diagnosed with shoulder tendonitis and shoulder bursitis as a result from overuse. Activities such as baseball, swimming, tennis, and weight training can all lead to overuse shoulder injuries.

Our Approach

When someone presents with an overuse condition, it is important to educate the patient about activity modification during the rest and recovery period. Shoulder pain treatment is often directed at correcting joint dysfunction and muscle imbalances, and removing scar tissue.

Our ability to quickly and accurately identify the source of shoulder pain and the underlying dysfunction is what separates us from the rest.

Many orthopedists and primary care physicians refer to our office for the difficult cases that don’t respond to traditional medical approaches or when patients suffer frequent recurrence of their shoulder injury. Proper treatment, corrective stretches, and exercises are all important for alleviating the overuse condition.
