Hands-on Physical Therapy
Orthopedic Sports Medicine
Our physical therapists and medical team uses diagnostic ultrasound, a low cost imaging tool that shows images of the soft tissues in your shoulder (muscles, ligaments, tendons).
Instead of your diagnosis relying solely on what a therapist FEELS… ultrasound imaging can allows our therapists to SEE the cause of your shoulder pain
With an accurate diagnosis, our therapists can recommend you the proper treatment…. rather that’s physical therapy with us or if you would be better served seeing a shoulder surgeon elsewhere
Streamlining your imaging and physical therapy in one clinic means fewer doctors visits (and co-pays) for you and your family

“These guys were miracle workers for my knee arthritis, I have no doubt they saved me from getting my knee replaced.”

When the protective cushion within our shoulder called a Bursa becomes inflamed, swelling and pinching of nearby muscles and nerves can cause shoulder pain that worsens while lifting overhead
Tears to the muscles that support the shoulders can lead to instability and muscle spasms around the area. Most tears do not require surgery and a full recovery is possible with the right care.
Poor posture and mechanics of the shoulder cause constant stress to the muscles of the shoulders. Painful scar tissue and toxins can build up within the muscles the shoulder, limiting range of motion and causing chronic inflammation.
Over time, shoulder joints lose lubricating fluid that protects the joints from rubbing together. As the joint dries out, friction causes cartilage to wear away and bones to rub together, leading to chronic pain and inflammation.

Soft tissue injuries are frequently evaluated using MSK (musculoskeletal) diagnostic ultrasonography. Soft tissue injuries that can be detected using MSK diagnostic ultrasonography include:
When you go see a physical therapist for a rotator cuff ailment, the first thing the therapist will do is perform a hands on examination of your shoulder.
Each physical therapist has a different way that they perform their exam, but mostly it will be a variation of moving and feeling your shoulder.
Without imaging to diagnose the health of your shoulder muscles, a physical therapist has to rely solely on their intuition to take a “best guess”.
Receiving treatment with a true diagnosis of your rotator cuff can lead to several problems:
Getting a low cost ultrasound at the beginning of your care can help you avoid these issues and help you receive the proper care.
