Whether you’re scratching your back, tossing a football, or picking up your child, your shoulder and arm are fully engaged. Your shoulder is a collection of joints, tendons, and muscles that allows for a wide range of motion and function. Your function can be limited by many different things, including night pain, numbness and tingling or swelling at the shoulder or elbow. These symptoms need to be investigated as they could be leading indicators of issues that an Orthology provider can treat effectively.
Common elbow and shoulder conditions include:
Their comprehensive approach encompasses nonsurgical treatments that relieve pain, promote healing and prevent future injuries. Orthology providers excel in customized treatment plans that are designed to increase your strength, restore your range of motion and alleviate pain.
Treatment begins with gaining a thorough understanding of the source of your pain, a clear diagnosis, and a personalized plan for getting you back to doing what you love. Trying to return to athletic activities? No problem. Orthology providers will even provide you a time-frame for your return.
Because they employ a hands-on approach and begin treatment at your very first appointment, you should feel relief or increased function quickly. You should also experience improved performance in your shoulder or arm.
At the outset of care, your medical and physical history is assessed, along with other lifestyle factors (such as the type of injury, age, sport, and other needs). With this information, Orthology providers are able to develop a custom care plan that fits your goals.
Employing soft tissue work on muscles, tendons, fascia; joint mobilization to the various joints at the shoulder; muscle strengthening for deltoid, rotator cuff, or shoulder blade stabilizers; your provider will utilize Orthology’s research-based approach to get you on the path to recovery. And while our non-invasive treatments can often prevent or postpone surgery, everyone is different.
Expect that your care will take anywhere from 4 to 8 visits and you will leave our offices with the resources you need to help prevent further issues.
Orthology providers work one-on-one with every patient to ensure their treatment goals are met. Therapy programs are continually reassessed to monitor changes and improvements in your condition. In addition to intensive hands-on treatment received in their practices, they integrate these therapeutic techniques into your daily life and provide you with a roadmap to follow for optimal recovery.
They believe the path to recovery is an active process. Therefore, Orthology providers ensure they provide you with the tools you need, such as at-home exercises and treatment related information, in order to continually improve and remain healthy outside of their practices. This creates a results-driven attitude that accelerates your healing, promotes healthy living and prevents re-injury or future injury.
