Q: I was “sleeping funny” and noticed shoulder and arm pain. Can PT help? 

A: Physical therapy can be very effective with shoulder pain & stiffness. PT would be beneficial in this situation by ruling out pain referred from your neck. Neck pain can occur without an apparent injury or another precipitating event. Shoulder pain, however, is more often associated with overuse or injury. A thorough and skilled physical therapy evaluation should determine the underlying cause of the pain and effectively treat or refer out to the appropriate professional for further diagnostics and treatment.
