Where to find shoulder treatment in El Paso, TX

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is one of the most freely moving joints in the body and sacrifices stability for that freedom. This makes suffering an injury from something as simple a fall a possibility that can send you searching for shoulder treatment. If you are in the El Paso, Texas area, the Edgemere office of Border Therapy Services can help diagnose your shoulder pain and provide you with effective shoulder treatment.

What causes shoulder pain?

Most shoulder injuries develop over time due to overuse. This causes the tendons or bursa in the shoulder to become inflamed. Common risk factors of injury that cause patients to seek shoulder treatment include:

  • Athletes who play sports with a lot of repetitive arm motions, such as baseball players, tennis players and swimmers.
  • Employees who lift heavy objects during the day like movers and warehouse workers.
  • Arthritis can develop in the acromioclavicular (AC) joint as we age, but untreated shoulder injuries can lead to arthritis for younger people.

In addition, sudden trauma to the shoulder caused by a fall or an auto collision can also cause damage to the shoulder.

How is shoulder pain diagnosed?

When you arrive at Border Therapy Services in El Paso, Texas, the physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation during your initial consultation. This will include gathering medical and previous injury history. Strength and range of motion will be measured to establish your baseline shoulder function.
