PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR SHOULDER PAIN

Shoulder pain can be enormously debilitating as it is the most mobile joint in your body. Usually pain occurs as the muscles are not strong enough to support the joints. This could be the result of a traumatic injury such as a fall, accident or playing sport.

Most shoulder pain is caused by one of the following conditions:

  • Rotator Cuff
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Shoulder Dislocation
  • Shoulder Fracture
  • Frozen Shoulder

At Your Physio Advantage, we will ensure we correctly diagnose the cause of your shoulder pain and put an effective treatment plan in place to reduce or eliminate the pain.

 In cases other than traumatic injury,
shoulder pain is caused by weak or
uncoordinated muscles

The treatment of any shoulder pain
depends heavily on the cause of the
problem

Your physiotherapist will provide
advice and treatment for your specific
condition
