There are many conditions of the shoulder and elbow. Some of these injuries and conditions are due to simple local joint restrictions, arthritis, or overuse syndromes. Other types of pain can be referred from the neck. It is important to be able to differentiate between these two types of problems and a thorough evaluation is necessary to accomplish this. Your therapist will perform tests and measures to identify the actual cause of your pain. If your tests are positive for an orthopedic concern that would benefit from imaging, you may be referred to have x-rays or MRI’s. Recently, ultrasound imaging has become an excellent alternative option for musculoskeletal conditions. Please speak to our admin team to find out more about this option.
