Shoulder therapy involves numerous exercises, stretches, and modality treatments. Chronic rotator cuff, shoulder pain, supraspinatus tendon, bicep tendon, and infraspinatus tendon injuries respond to physical therapy combined with graston technique treatments.
Deep massage therapy treatments combined with Graston Technique can produce muscle soreness and bruising. Some people are more tender after these types of treatments. Treatment days that involve Graston Technique are often combined with ice therapy post treatment. Icing decreases the probability of developing pain from treatment.
Exercises and stretches help decrease the soreness in addition to the ice. Shoulder injuries are difficult to resolve, but stability exercises, deep massage therapy, and graston are excellent treatment options for shoulder pain.
