How to Treat Your Shoulder Pain

By Dr. Brian Kessler |


physical_therapy_for_shoulder.jpgThe shoulder has a wide range of motion and is the most moveable joint in the body. Overuse or repetitive motion injuries occur to the shoulder when one repeats the same activity or overdoes an act. Repeated activity by the arm stresses joints and tissues in the shoulder and causes pain and swelling.
