“My first visit to DPT was the best experience I have ever had. First, Lesa and Victoria were in the front and greeted me and just made me feel so comfortable and welcomed! I sometimes don’t even want to leave my appointments anymore cause they’re just a fun bunch to be around!
But, my consultation with Dr. Tom was LIFE CHANGING. After 18 years of accepting that my pain was “degenerative” and not really knowing what was causing my pain- Dr. Tom was finally able to give me an answer! I literally cried on my drive home because he gave me hope that I didn’t have to live my life in constant debilitating pain.”

Does This Sound Like Your Shoulder Pain?
If it does, then you may have already tried many of the traditional methods of solving shoulder pain such as:
- Going to your MD, who told you to rest and take pain medication. They told you that if this didn’t work, they would refer you to an orthopedic surgeon for a consultation.
- Going to that orthopedic surgeon, and being told that surgery was your only option.
- You’ve asked some friends who kind of laugh and say “That’s just what happens as we get older!”
- Getting a massage which helps keep the pain down, but never quite seems to make it go away entirely.
- Looking up some exercises on youtube, but not finding anything that provided lasting results.
At this point it’s understandable to be frustrated, and you might be thinking that there’s a better way, and you just have not found it yet.
How Does Shoulder Pain Get Solved For Good?
While many Scottsdale shoulder pain treatment providers focus on one area, a joint, a muscle, a ligament, what most people need is a provider that will approach your case as a whole. They should take everything into account when diagnosing what the root cause of your limitations are, and what to do about them.
There are 3 things that are necessary, in order to get you from the sidelines, back into an active life.
Accurate diagnosis of the ROOT CAUSE of your pain. Where your symptoms are, is often the result of a deeper problem. You will be amazed at learning how powerful treating the root cause can be. Not only will your pain go away, but you may find yourself feeling stronger than you have felt in years. When the root cause is found many people are not surprised to find out that an injury that they had years ago has contributed to their issue.
Here’s the best part: Even if that injury is years in the past, a good provider can still develop a plan to get it corrected.
A comprehensive STRATEGY to get you from point A to point B (Point B is your goal lifestyle). There are many pieces to an injury. Tight muscles, sprained ligaments, weakness, stiff joints…There is no one size fits all, and a strategy is needed to address each individual component of your condition, while fixing the root cause.
Take frequent measurements. After all, the proof is in the pudding. Measurements allow a provider to determine how you are responding to treatment. This is more than just a “Hey, are you feeling better, or worse? Scale of 1-10?” situation. Taking real measurements of your range of motion, strength, and movement patterns on a regular basis is necessary. When a provider has a STRATEGY, when the measurements are not meeting expectations it allows them to figure out why & change direction.
The truth is, that we live in a society that’s obsessed with quick-fixes. This has led to short-sighted medicinal solutions to shoulder pain, that simply fail to address the root cause of the issue.
There are enough people out there who are ok with taking pills, or waiting until surgery, that doctors and insurance companies have shifted towards this model. As a result, it’s difficult for active people who want real solutions to find good help.
When living an active life is important to you, it can be gut-wrenching to have a doctor look you in the eyes and tell you to stop doing what you love. It can feel like a big part of your life has just fallen away. That’s why it’s important to find a Scottsdale shoulder pain treatment doctor who is on-board with you helping you live the best life you can.
