Whether the Pain Results From an Injury or Repetitive Activity, We Can Help

Shoulder, Elbow, and Wrist Physical Therapy

Shoulder, elbow and wrist pain can start with an injury or through common daily activities. Posture and inefficient movement patterns can make it harder for the body to heal. And because the shoulder is the only joint in the body that relies on muscles for support, it is particularly susceptible to injuries caused by muscle imbalance.

A healthy upper body starts here

A healthy upper body starts with proper alignment of the rib cage, shoulder blades and head. The shoulder blade is the stable base from which the shoulder and arm function, so it is very important that it is in the correct alignment.

Andersonville Physical Therapy in Chicago helps you regain upper extremity stability, range of motion and strength. We’ll work with you to find your best alignment so your deep postural muscles support your shoulder blades and improve the strength and muscle balance of your shoulder, elbow and hand. Using functional strengthening exercises, we will train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports.

Common upper extremity problems that we treat include:

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Biceps Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Shoulder pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Wrist pain
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Elbow pain
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Arthritis

Our whole-person approach identifies the cause of your pain, treats the injury and retrains you to avoid re-injury.
