Manhattan Shoulder Pain Specialist
Treating Shoulder Injuries & Issues in New York City
The joints of the shoulder are the most flexible in the body; however, the shoulder’s complete range of motion makes it highly susceptible to injury and strain. Tendonitis, bursitis, frozen shoulder, and shoulder impingement are leading causes of shoulder pain.
Shoulder injury, such as a rotator cuff injury or a shoulder labrum tear, involves damage to any part of the complex shoulder structure including the shoulder joint, tendons, or muscles. The term “rotator cuff” describes the four tendons that connect the bone of the upper arm to the shoulder socket. A labrum tear or labral tear involves damage to the cartilage that holds the bone of the upper arm, the humerus, in the shoulder socket.
- Untreated, these injuries can lead to severe loss of shoulder function and mobility. If that sounds familiar, set up an appointment with Manhattan Sports Therapy. Our lead physician Dr. Rolland Nemirovsky specializes in chronic shoulder pain that is most often the result of strain on the soft-tissues designed to stabilize and mobilize the shoulder.
His patients often regain full, pain-free mobility through state-of-the-art rehabilitative and chiropractic methods. Our solutions address both the symptoms and the root cause of shoulder pain, helping you get back into an active and pain-free lifestyle as soon as possible.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?
As with many musculoskeletal problems, wear and tear and overuse are the most common causes of pain, inflammation, and damage. Dr. Nemirovsky’s extensive sports medicine training positions him to expertly assess the cause of shoulder pain that results from physical strain, overuse, or degenerative wear. While shoulder problems occur frequently in athletes, anyone whose shoulders are subject to repetitive action and strain may be at risk.
Dr. Nemirovsky’s treatment focuses on precise diagnostics to determine the fundamental cause of your injury and how to restore long-term function and comfort. Our solutions take a holistic approach, looking at the chronic and ongoing factors that often allow acute injuries to occur. As a result, our board-certified Chiropractic Sports Physician can help you recover effectively from your injury while preventing another injury from occurring.
Treating Shoulder Pain & Shoulder Injury
Dr. Nemirovsky’s approach to treating shoulder pain and repairing imbalances and soft-tissue damage includes a combination of strengthening and stretching exercises. Restoring shoulder mobility and flexibility, particularly involving the rotator cuff, is accomplished through manipulation therapy, mobilization techniques, and physical therapy. For labrum or labral tears where surgery is not indicated, soft-tissue treatments and physical therapy are highly effective pain and recovery tools.
