[VIDEO] How Long before My Shoulder Pain Starts to Feel Better?
Dr. Mark Roczey:
We see so many people in our practice with shoulder pain and injuries, and commonly that's a question that we hear often: "How long will it take to get well?" Typically what we find is we have to take in a couple of factors such as the patient's age, their weight, their history, their condition, and what their occupation is.
Every patient who comes into our office with a shoulder condition wants to be out of pain overnight. Most commonly it takes about two to four weeks to get somebody out of discomfort, increase their range of motion, and get the relief that they want. What's most important is the patient who's typically searching for answers has to realize that the condition didn't start overnight and it's going to take some time to heal.
It could take anywhere for two to four dozen visits over six to eight months to get somebody strong, stable, and well.
