Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

If you are experiencing stiffness in the shoulder joint you should seek medical attention sooner rather than later to prevent permanent stiffness. Frozen Shoulder is a persistently stiff and painful condition. You need prompt and effective treatment. Reach out to the Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Team at Spine and Sports Medicine in Midtown Manhattan. Delaying treatment will only worsen your pain and injury.

Frozen Shoulder

Also known as adhesive capsulitis – the diagnosis of frozen shoulder is often confused with arthritis. This is a common condition in which the shoulder stiffens and reduces mobility.

Frozen shoulder affects the specific shoulder joint of people between the ages of 40 and 60.

  • It can affect one or both shoulders
  • Symptoms include persistent pain and stiffness in the upper shoulder joint

Diagnosing Frozen Shoulder

At Spine and Sports Medicine, one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy will conduct diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your shoulder pain. Only a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy has the ability to diagnose and treat frozen shoulder. An accurate diagnosis is crucial to a successful treatment plan.
