Shoulder Pain

We depend so much on using our arms and back that we often don’t notice that we may have abused and injured our shoulder. This can also keep us from performing simple tasks like writing, carrying objects and/or children, and walking. Even more challenging is playing any sport requiring upper body movement. Finally, getting a good night’s sleep can also become a challenge.

This kind of pain should never be ignored as it can often lead to joint damage, neck or back pain, and nerve damage.

At Vita, we specialize in helping to reduce your pain, increase movement, and prevent further injuries.

Total shoulder replacement
(Post Surgery Rehabilitation)

When the pain is waking you up at night, and it is challenging to participate in everyday activities, your physician may recommend total joint replacement of your shoulder. During this surgery, your orthopedic doctor will replace damaged tissue and bone surfaces with prosthetic components that are cemented securely in place

Rotator cuff pain

A rotator cuff injury can cause a dull ache in the shoulder that worsens at night. Most of these injuries increase or are more common as we age, particularly for those who repeatedly perform tasks requiring overhead motions (e.g., teachers, painters, and carpenters).

Adhesive capsulitis
Frozen Shoulder

When the flexible tissue that surrounds the shoulder joint, known as the capsule, becomes inflamed and thickened – this is also known as Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder. Pain and persistent stiffness in the shoulder joint are the two prominent symptoms of a frozen shoulder.

Shoulder impingement

When the cycle of rubbing of the rotator cuff between your humerus and the top outer edge of your shoulder. The rubbing leads to more swelling and further narrowing of the space, which result in pain and irritation.

Calcific tendonitis

When hard calcium deposits form on soft tissue or tendons of the rotator cuff in the shoulder, the joint becomes inflamed and painful. Symptoms typically appear as we age and place too much wear and tear on the shoulder.
