Shoulder Pain


Shoulder pain can be caused by inflammation and dysfunction of the structures around the shoulder joint such as: shoulder bursitis, shoulder tendonitis, impingement syndrome or rotator cuff muscles and their tendons.

It is also possible that shoulder pain can be felt from a problem elsewhere in the body such as: neck, nerve, upper back and even the diaphragm!  Physiotherapists are experts at assessing whether your pain is coming from the shoulder or another source.

The anatomy of the ball and socket joint with the movements of the shoulder blade and collar bone make the shoulder an extremely complex system. Therefore the shoulder is very sensitive to abnormal loads and tensions.

Repetitive actions and poor muscle control can contribute to the formation of shoulder pain.

Following a thorough assessment and diagnosis many treatment are available for managing shoulder pain. These include massage, joint mobilisation/manipulation, ultrasound, postural modification and a specialised home exercise programme.

Physiotherapists are also able to help with post surgical rehabilitation.
