Shoulder Pain

Med1Care Therapy Partner is distinguished for its specialization in offering physical therapy tailored for shoulder pain treatment. Shoulder pain is a condition that affects both athletes and non-athletes, emphasizing the importance of accurate diagnosis and effective treatment for relief.

Shoulder pain symptoms can manifest either gradually over time or suddenly, presenting as either a persistent dull ache or a sharp, intense sensation. The origin of this pain may stem from muscles, ligaments, tendons, or the shoulder joint itself. Activities involving arm movement, lifting objects, or opening doors can exacerbate joint discomfort. While referred pain, may result from issues in the chest or abdomen. Unlike primary shoulder pain, referred shoulder pain typically does not escalate when the shoulder is in motion.

If your shoulder pain results from an injury and is accompanied by the following symptoms, immediate medical attention is advised:

  • Sudden and pronounced swelling
  • Noticeable joint deformity
  • Inability to raise the arm
  • Visible bone or tendon exposure
  • Severe pain

Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain often signals irritation in the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine. Several factors contribute to this discomfort, including pregnancy, muscle spasms, lumbar spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and spondylolisthesis.

Various underlying issues can lead to shoulder pain, including:

  • Medical conditions affecting the chest and abdomen, such as heart disease or gallbladder problems
  • Development of frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • Occurrence of a heart attack
  • Impingement syndrome, encompassing conditions like bursitis and rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Dislocation of the shoulder joint
  • Fractures in the arm or collarbone
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Cartilage tear
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Strains or sprains
  • Tendinosis or tendon rupture
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Inflammation of the shoulder joint (bursitis)
  • Tear in the labrum
  • Presence of osteoarthritis

How We Help

If you’re dealing with shoulder pain, our seasoned team of physical therapists is dedicated to aiding you in alleviating discomfort, enhancing your mobility, and restoring your overall quality of life.

Chronic Pain

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s team of physical therapists possesses extensive knowledge in the treatment of chronic pain. Chronic pain is characterized by its persistence for months or even years, often extending beyond the typical recovery period or coinciding with a chronic health condition like arthritis.

Chronic pain can profoundly impact various aspects of life, including work, eating habits, physical activity, and overall enjoyment. It can lead to the development of depression and anxiety, sometimes culminating in what’s referred to as Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS) or the “terrible triad” of suffering, sleep disturbances, and feelings of sadness.

In some cases, chronic pain may lead to dependencies on medications, repeated surgeries, or the pursuit of questionable treatments in the quest for relief from symptoms. 

Diagnosing Chronic Pain

Diagnosing chronic pain involves considering a variety of potential causes, which encompass:

  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)
  • Stomach pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Nerve (neuropathic) pain
  • Nonepileptic spells
  • Back pain
  • Central sensitivity syndromes
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Post-cancer treatment-related pain, such as after mastectomy

During the process of diagnosing chronic pain, your healthcare provider will inquire about the underlying illness or injury that triggered the pain, its duration, and its intensity.

How We Help

Med1Care Therapy Partner is proud to feature experienced therapists who are adept at effectively managing chronic pain. Chronic pain typically necessitates a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to treatment, which may encompass counseling, relaxation techniques, and the integration of physical therapy.

Your personalized treatment plan could involve a range of exercises aimed at enhancing muscle strength, reducing stiffness, mitigating spasticity, and addressing joint inflammation. We collaborate closely with your pain management rehabilitation team to synergize efforts in reducing your pain and guiding you towards a path of recovery and improved quality of life.

Fall Prevention

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s physical therapists specialize in comprehensive fall prevention. Did you realize that the most significant risk factor for future falls is having experienced a previous fall? Everyday activities, including tasks like getting out of bed, using the bathroom, or entering and exiting the shower, can pose higher risks than we may perceive.

Startling Facts:

  • Falls are the primary cause of accidental fatalities in individuals over 45 years old.
  • Falls rank as the leading contributor to hospitalization due to accidents in adults.
  • Falling is the main reason for transitioning to a nursing home.

Approximately 40% of individuals aged 65 and above encounter a fall each year, leading to severe repercussions such as fractured hips and concussions that can compromise their independence. 

Causes of Falls:

Multiple factors contribute to the heightened risk of falls among older adults, including:

  • Sensory changes in the feet
  • Simultaneous use of five or more medications
  • Home hazards, including inadequate lighting and tripping hazards like rugs
  • Orthostatic hypotension (blood pressure drop upon standing)
  • Vision changes
  • Previous falls (top risk factor)
  • Vestibular problems
  • Foot strength and footwear suitability
  • Issues with balance and/or gait

A study involving 765 individuals aged 64 to 97, conducted by Marian T. Hannan, DSc, MPH, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, revealed that falls occur indoors and outdoors with equal likelihood. However, different risk factors are associated with each setting:

Indoor Fall Risk Factors:

  • Lower cognitive function
  • Concurrent use of five or more medications
  • Female gender
  • Poor overall health
  • Age (older)
  • Inactivity
  • Disability

Outdoor Fall Risk Factors:

  • High activity level
  • Higher education
  • Male gender
  • Younger age
  • Above-average health

Over the span of two years, nearly 10% of falls resulted in significant injuries, with 10.2% for indoor falls and 9% for outdoor falls. Most outdoor falls occurred on hard concrete surfaces such as sidewalks, streets, curbs, outdoor stairs, and parking lots, with only 14% taking place on soft surfaces like yards and gardens.

How We Help

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s skilled therapists are extensively trained in fall prevention strategies, identifying potential safety hazards, and assessing fall risks. We prioritize your safety and well-being by conducting a thorough evaluation of your home environment and offering recommendations for enhancements when necessary. These recommendations might include installing raised seats or armrests for toilets, adding grab bars in showers, or eliminating rugs that pose a risk.

Our licensed physical therapists are committed to your convenience and comfort. They will visit your home in Lambertville or any of the 27 counties we serve. Following a comprehensive assessment of your needs, a personalized plan will be devised, and a dedicated schedule will be set to help you achieve your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both physical therapy and physiotherapy use movement and hands-on techniques to help improve the body’s condition, but they differ in their way of doing this. In summary, physiotherapy is fixed on manual therapies, while physical treatment is mainly exercise-based.

Top 5 Benefits of Physical Therapy

  • Physical Therapy Can Help You Recover From a Traumatic Event.
  • Physical Therapy Can Lower Your Risk of Aggravating Your Injury. 
  • Physical Therapy Can Improve Mobility and Balance. 
  • Physical Therapy Can Reduce Chronic Pain. 
  • Physical Therapy Can Help Improve Athletic Performance.

Physical therapists can diagnose disorders and prescribe treatments for them. Physical therapists can assess things like balance, mobility, and strength and recommend improving function.

The most basic difference between physical therapy and occupational therapy is that a PT focuses on improving the patient’s ability to move their body whereas an OT focuses on improving the patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living.

Occupational therapists are trained to assist people to overcome various problems in order to live more independent lives. People may need assistance due to injury or illness, mental health problems, developmental delay or the effects of aging.

The Framework is structured around four interacting Pillars of Practice, namely: Professional Practice; Facilitation of Learning; Leadership; and Evidence, Research and Development.

While there is no specific research to identify a precise rate of success among speech therapy patients, one study showed that approximately 70% of preschool-aged children who underwent speech therapy saw a significant improvement in their communication skills.

The best age for speech therapy is the age your child is at when they start to fall behind, or when you notice they’re not meeting milestones. It’s never too early or too late to start therapy. Children who aren’t speaking at all are commonly referred for speech and language assessments around 18 months of age.

Rehabilitation involves building up the body’s strength, re-learning necessary skills, and adjusting to changes in function as a result of illness or injury. It can be a long process, so it is best to have a plan.

Phase 1 – Control Pain and Swelling. Phase 2 – Improve Range of Motion and/or Flexibility. Phase 3 – Improve Strength & Begin Proprioception/Balance Training. Phase 4 – Proprioception/Balance Training & Sport-Specific Training.

The three main types of rehabilitation therapy are occupational, physical and speech. Each form of rehabilitation serves a unique purpose in helping a person reach full recovery, but all share the ultimate goal of helping the patient return to a healthy and active lifestyle.

The detox process is often regarded as the most difficult part of rehab physically. This is because the withdrawal process can cause uncomfortable, and even dangerous, physical and psychological symptoms, such as shakiness, nausea, irregular heartbeat, depression, agitation, mood swings, and insomnia. Therapy.

Rehabilitation is for people who have lost abilities that they need for daily life. Some of the most common causes include: Injuries and trauma, including burns, fractures (broken bones), traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injuries.

A: Avoid aggravation. It is important not to aggravate the injury during the rehabilitation process. …

T: Timing. …

C: Compliance. …

I: Individualization. …

S: Specific sequencing. …

I: Intensity. …

T: Total patient.

Although rehabilitation has many positive benefits, rehabilitation can also negatively impact a patient’s mood, anxiety, pain and boredom.

Rehabilitation for a patient means getting them back to where they were before. In contrast, physical therapy or physiotherapy is a sort of rehabilitation that can be incorporated into the rehab plan to assist in regaining the body’s strength.
