Upper Right

Dealing with pain shouldn’t be the norm and yet millions of Americans suffer from it. It’s amazing how easily chronic pain can affect your quality of life. Here at Total Health Center, we are dedicated to pinpointing the root cause of your pain and discomfort and to help improve how your body functions as a whole without needing to turn to medication or surgery.

The upper right quadrant encompasses everything from the top of your head to the abdomen. There are many reasons why someone might develop pain, stiffness or limited range of motion in this area. Two of the most common problems are neck pain and shoulder pain. In fact, you might even be surprised to hear that upper quadrant pain is actually the second most common work-related complaint after back pain. If you are dealing with upper quadrant pain then it’s time to find out how our team of osteopaths and physical therapists can help.

Whether you are dealing with whiplash from a bad car accident, shoulder impingement from a sports injury or carpal tunnel syndrome, there are many conditions that can affect the upper right area of the body; fortunately, our expert physical and occupational therapists can create a treatment plan based on your symptoms, health problems and specific needs.

No matter whether your upper right musculoskeletal pain has made it nearly impossible to work or you are just sick and tired of persistent discomfort, there are many reasons why you should turn to our osteopathic team here at Total Health Center.

Manual manipulation techniques have been a major success for patients dealing with neck pain and discomfort. If your neck problems are causing you stiffness, pain and limited range-of-motion, then our physical therapists can employ a variety of manipulative techniques to realign vertebrae in the cervical spine and to take unnecessary pressure off certain tendons, ligaments, joints or soft tissue in that region. Manual manipulation is also a great way to increase blood flow to these areas, delivering the vital nutrients the musculoskeletal system needs to heal quickly and efficiently.

Of course, there are other techniques we can recommend to improve conditions that are affecting the upper right side of your body. We can show you a series of exercises to help with problems related to the neck, shoulder, arm, wrist or back. Along with these rehabilitation exercises we may also recommend electrical stimulation or massage therapy.
