Shoulder Pain

Are You Tired Of Shoulder Pain That Is Not Going Away?

If you are ready to solve the problem that is causing your shoulder pain, then this is the place for you! 

​Shoulder pain is common... and many people will suffer from shoulder pain at some point in their lifetime.  The great news is... almost all shoulder pain can be treated- naturally... without medications, injections, or surgery.  Recent research shows that exercise therapy is as effective as shoulder surgery in most people... even if you've been told you have a rotator cuff tear. The key to finding relief from your shoulder pain is to find the ROOT CAUSE.  Most healthcare providers are busy hunting down the SOURCE... that is- where you feel the pain.  However, most times, the cause can be somewhere else in the body... sometimes close by, other times farther away.  Rather than treating the source of the problem (which only covers up the symptoms) we look to find the root cause.  Here at Physical Therapy & Johnson, you're brought through a thorough evaluation to determine the factors that could be causing your shoulder pain.  Once we find the problem, treatment is aimed at correcting it-  and most people feel much better, much more quickly, than they do if receiving care at other PT practices.

Common Causes Of Shoulder Pain Include:

  • Labral Tears
  • Arthritis ("Bone On Bone")
  • Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Biceps Tendonitis
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Nerve Problems
  • Neck Problems

"Dr. Charlie Johnson is excellent to detail and understanding your needs and concerns. He thoroughly spends time with you and helps you understand where your pain is coming from. He is willing to work with you if you have multiple body parts that are giving you problems. Within four visits my range of motion in my shoulder was improved 100%. No pain in my mid back. My low back flexibility has improved tremendously. He uses Physical Therapy techniques as well as hands on manipulation. I highly recommend Dr. Charlie Johnson. Thank you for making me feel back to my normal self again!”

"I was involved in a traumatic rollover car collision on May 7, 2015 and separated my left (AC) joint, where the shoulder blade attaches to the collarbone. Electing NOT to have surgery, my orthopedist and I decided that the AC joint injury could be identified and effectively treated by physical therapy. I chose to seek the help of physical therapist Charles Johnson, DPT nearly one week after my accident.

I came to Dr. Johnson with general shoulder pain and swelling, tenderness over the AC joint, loss of shoulder strength and motion, and a visible bump above the shoulder. Dr. Johnson worked with me and developed an individualized plan tailored to fit my condition, goals and busy schedule. After assessing my movement quality, Dr. Johnson developed a treatment plan to help me get back to 100% in 4-6 weeks.

In the early stages of treatment, he recommended therapeutic modalities including leukotaping, ice, and REST – which were hard for me because I am a very active individual. He then monitored my weight-lifting activities to maintain adequate strength and motion around the shoulder and taught me about the risks of pushing through pain. As I progressed, he was able to point out and correct movements to help me mobilize the shoulder joint and surrounding muscles as needed, to improve motion, flexibility and strength – and to maintain a pain-free shoulder! Exactly 5 weeks later, my shoulder is stronger than ever and I have safely returned to the gym training at 100%. Thanks Dr. Johnson!!!”

“I went to see Dr. Charlie for shoulder pain. He really listened to what was causing me pain and took his time with determining the course of action. He gave me exercises to work on at home and we took a slow approach. This approach was just what I needed. Within 4 weeks I had my range of motion back and was pain free. Please go see Dr. Charlie. He will work with you to determine the best way to get you back up and moving.”
