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.
Is that how you’re feeling right now?
If so, you’re not alone. In fact, every day at Rehab United Seattle we help people here in Seattle 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 the Shoulder Pain going away?
Will I have to live with Shoulder Pain forever?
Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusing and misleading information out there that causes 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 Seattle 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 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 relaxing massages to temporary relieve Shoulder Pain, only to find it comes back after the massage wears off.
Mistake #7: Got 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 say, “we are sorry” ...but let 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. It goes over how to end your shoulder pain (and you can click on the button above to download it).
But maybe you feel like you’ve read a lot of free information on the internet, and really just want to talk to someone about your problem.
Is that you? If so, then we have a special opportunity for you (one that VERY FEW clinics offer).
We save a limited number of spots each week for time for people who are not sure what to do about their shoulder pain. That way, you can tell a professional your story, and get your question answered first, before ever making a commitment to book an appointment.
Does that sound like something you would like to do?
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. So, the next important thing is to take action.
