Experiencing Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain and related disorders are quite prevalent across the life span for a variety of reasons. The shoulder, with the greatest range of motion, is the most unstable joint in the human body and therefore the most dislocated. Dislocations and subluxations can occur traumatically in sports and other high energy impacts, whilst some individuals are genetically predisposed to instabilities from lesser or minimal traumas. Impingement and rotator cuff disorders are also quite common from repetitive or acute trauma, the effects of aging and postural overloading. All of these shoulder disorders can respond well with suitable physio rehab management, sometimes with other interventions where indicated.
Depending on the nature of your shoulder problem will then determine the optimal management. Your physio will provide a thorough assessment to help treatment planning which may include specific exercises, dry needling, hydrotherapy, manual and soft tissue therapies, bracing/ taping, as well as activity advice and referral where indicated. Selecting the best exercises for your particular presentation is a critical part of us helping you overcome your shoulder pain and ideally prevent it from returning.
