The functionality of the shoulder enables us to swing a tennis racquet, steer a car, lift objects over our head, pull start a lawnmower, and many other movements. As a result of a sudden traumatic injury, constant repetitive movement, or biological changes to the shoulder, there are a variety of injuries and conditions that can cause significant pain, restrict movement, and limit strength.
Shoulder therapy is a treatment prescribed by your physician that can improve range of motion, reduce or eliminate the pain, and increase strength + function. A comprehensive rehabilitation program treats the root cause of the injury or condition and can provide excellent long-lasting results. Therapy is a step typically used by physicians prior to prescribing a surgical procedure, and it is also used to help improve function after a surgery is performed.
The specialists at Kleiser Therapy focus exclusively on hand, arm, and shoulder rehabilitation. Using the knowledge and expertise from over 24 years of specialized care treating thousands of patients with excellent results, we know which treatments work best for which specific injury or condition. Our licensed Occupational Therapists can develop a customized, highly-effective treatment program to address your specific injury and needs.
The sooner that treatment is started after an injury occurs or a condition develops, typically a shorter therapy time is required to regain function and movement. If you are suffering from an injury or condition that requires rehabilitation, don’t put off getting the injury checked by your physician.
If you are unsure whether the injury or condition is serious enough to require medical attention, we offer complimentary screenings where you will meet with one of our therapists who will evaluate your condition and recommend the right next steps based on your injuries, all at no charge to you.
