Abstract

Nearly one out of three individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) will experience shoulder pain at some point in their lives. This pain can be especially debilitating due to the increased use of the upper extremities for mobility, transfers, and pressure relief. Due to this reliance on the upper extremities, conservative interventions for persistent shoulder pain may be favored over surgical interventions. The purpose of this case report is to describe the outcomes of a 6-week physical therapy (PT) treatment plan for an individual with chronic SCI who had been experiencing persistent shoulder pain.
