The shoulder is a complex structure made of three separate joints. They work together to give the shoulder a tremendous range of motion. Let’s take a closer look at the main parts of the shoulder’s anatomy.

JOI Rehab Has 11 Clinics That Treat Shoulder Pain

JOI Rehab clinicians typically concentrate on range-of-motion with active and passive mobility exercises when treating patients for shoulder pain.

Joint mobilization, which is a hands-on technique to improve mobility of the joints, is another way to treat pain in the shoulder. In some cases, patients will undergo strength training as a way to treat their shoulder pain. Lastly, electrical modalities such as ultrasound and E-Stim (electric stimulation) may be used to remedy the pain.
