Physical Therapy for the Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist
Shoulder, elbow, and wrist injuries often start with abnormal mechanics and are usually aggravated by common activities that you perform daily. In fact, 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 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's very important that it's in the correct alignment and the stabilizing muscles keep it connected to the rib cage.
Andersonville Physical Therapy in Chicago can help you regain upper extremity stability, range of motion, and strength. We'll work with you to improve your upper body alignment, strengthen your scapular stabilizers and improve the strength and muscle balance of your shoulder, elbow, and hand. Our whole-person approach identifies the cause of your pain, treats the injury, and retrains you to avoid re-injury.
Common upper extremity problems that we treat include:
- Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Biceps Tendonitis
- Tennis Elbow
- Shoulder Pain

- Wrist Pain
- Post-surgical Rehabilitation
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
- Elbow Pain
