Buildup of calcium deposits in the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder causing pain and inflammation. Pain in the shoulder is often increased by elevation of the arm above shoulder level and/or by lying on the involved shoulder. You may also experience shoulder stiffness, weakness in the muscles of the shoulder and arm, and the feeling of catching and snapping in the shoulder.
The Physical Therapists at Apple Physical Therapy will design a personalized treatment plan specific to you and your injury that will include range of motion, stretching and strengthening exercises to improve mobility and strength in your shoulder to allow you to return to normal daily activity. We will include manual therapy techniques such as massage and stretching of the shoulder and surrounding muscles to improve motion and decrease pain. If necessary, your PT may elect to use modalities such as heat, ice and/or electrical stimulation to help reduce pain and ready the body for exercise.
