Shoulder Pain - Physical Therapy

Why are my shoulders clicking?

Clicking and popping around the shoulders is not always indicative of something bad going on in the area, as the body is designed to move and adapt itself as we move throughout the day. These symptoms could be caused by muscles and tendons moving over each other or by moving over other structures in the shoulder area. They could also be related to the joints in that area themselves.

How long should I use ice packs after breaking ankle?

After an injury, ice can be helpful for the first week during the inflammation phase to help with pain and swelling. Icing can continue beyond the first week as needed to help with pain management.

What could be causing my knee to feel weak/tired?

I have been running for a while now. I have a goal of training for a half-marathon, but I was never able to get above 5.5 or 6 miles because my knee started feeling weak towards the end of my runs.

How much it strengthens the muscle will depend a bit on how your current strength is and how much weight you are adding at the ankle.
