Try Physical Therapy for Fishing Injuries

Published July 18th, 2023 by Dr. Markson

Fishing can be a tranquil, idyllic, and even life-affirming experience. There’s just something so fulfilling about heading out to the pier or your boat, casting a line out into the glassy water, and enjoying the moment with people you care about. But fishing injuries like pain in your shoulder can ruin all that pleasure quite quickly. Physical therapy can help you overcome, restoring range of motion in your shoulder so that you can get back to doing what you love. 

Why Try Physical Therapy for Fishing Injuries

You might not think of fishing as being the most physically rigorous pastime, but consider for a moment how much stress it can put on your body. While you may only cast a line out into the water a few times, that motion can lead to severe pain in your shoulder—especially if you perform a lot of repetitive motions that make it more susceptible to injury.

If you go fishing on a regular basis, you could easily wind up suffering injuries like a torn rotator cuff. This means you’ll have a limited range of motion in your arm, which can make it tough to perform daily tasks, and you’ll experience searing pain that can make it difficult to get to sleep. 

But you don’t have to sit idly by and wait for pain in your shoulder to wash over you. Physical therapy can help you recover from fishing injuries faster, giving you the strength you need to heal and even improve. Regular physical therapy can restore limited range of motion back to nearly 100%, reduce pain down to nothing, and make you feel as good if not better than you did before you got hurt.
