Shoulder, Elbow, and Wrist


How we treat shoulder, elbow, and wrist pain

Your shoulders, elbows, and wrists are what make you uniquely human. Pain in these locations can interfere with activities of daily living and make maintaining or improving your health through fitness impossible.

All effective treatment starts with a complete understanding of what is driving your pain. Our intake process is comprehensive. This allows us to create customized exams in order to pinpoint the root cause of your issue.

Range of motion testing is an important aspect of solving your pain equation. The areas of your body that lack the most range of motion are likely causing your pain. Adhesion, degeneration, and weakness are among the causes of your lack of range.

For shoulders, adhesion, cartilage, and tendon degeneration are the most common causes of pain. For elbows, wrists, and hands, tendon degeneration and adhesion commonly cause pain. Nerve entrapments also present themselves commonly in the upper body. For shoulders, most patients experience 50-75% relief in 6-8 visits. For wrists, elbows, and hands, most patients get 40-60% relief in 10-12 visits.
