When shoulder pain starts, it’s easy to think about just ignoring it, hoping that it will be gone by tomorrow. Maybe you assume you just tweaked it in a workout and it will be no big deal. Even worse, maybe you think your shoulder pain is just “normal” and it’s a part of getting older.
Here are your best options to decide if physical therapy is right for you:
Option 1: Talk to a physical therapist on the phone. If you're not quite ready to book an appointment yet, you might have some questions that you would like answered first. Call any of our locations and ask to speak with a therapist.
Option 2: Are you unsure if physical therapy is right for your injury? Or maybe you would like to try our services before making a decision? Click "Request An Appointment" above and ask for a Free 15-Minute Injury Screen.
Option 3: Book an insurance physical therapy evaluation. If you want to move forth with setting up a 1:1 physical therapy evaluation, please click the link at the top of our page and request an appointment. During this evaluation, we will assess your pain, provide our expert opinion on what is causing your pain, and then give you a detailed plan of care on how to eliminate your shoulder pain.

Is that how you’re feeling right now?
If so, you’re not alone. In fact, we help people every single day who feel this way.
You see, with shoulder pain, everyone asks us the same questions:
Why does my shoulder pain hurt so much? (I don’t even know what I did…)
Why isn’t my shoulder pain going away?
Will I have to live with this shoulder pain forever?
Unfortunately, there are a lot of confusing and misleading information out there that cause people to live with shoulder pain for way too long. Here are the most common mistakes that we see from the people that come to Rehab United with shoulder pain:
Mistake #1: Thinking shoulder pain will go away with rest and ice.
Mistake #2: Believing that shoulder pain will be “fixed” with pills or injections.
Mistake #3: Assuming shoulder pain is a “normal” part of getting older.
Mistake #4: Believing that since you've tried other healthcare professionals (even other physical therapists) in the past means that it won’t work now.
Mistake #5: Relying on “Dr. Google” or YouTube for exercises that didn’t make any difference (or maybe even made your shoulder pain worse!)
Mistake #6: Getting a cortisone injection from your doctor to ease the pain, only to have it come back a few months later.
Have you had any of these experiences?
If any of this has happened to you, we want to remind you that you’re not alone. In fact, we see people just like you every day, and that’s why we’ve created a free Shoulder Pain Guide for you, which goes over how to end your shoulder pain.
But if you feel like you’ve read a lot of free information on the internet, and prefer to talk to someone about your problem, you can do that, too.
We save a limited number of spots each week for time to meet or speak with people who are not sure what to do about their shoulder pain (or any pain). That way, you can talk to a provider about your specific condition, and get your questions answered first before ever making a commitment to book an appointment.
If that sounds like something you would like to do, give us a call or request an appointment.
Here’s the most important thing…most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action. The one thing we can guarantee is that by doing nothing, your shoulder pain won’t get better, and will surely get worse.
So, the next important thing is to take action.
