Shoulder Pain Treatment
Are you searching for shoulder pain treatment in Eltham? As an Eltham based physiotherapist, I
help people of all ages to control and overcome shoulder pain.
Some people come in for an assessment because they are feeling a few twinges of shoulder pain as
they go about their daily activities. Others come in because their shoulder pain is affecting how they
play sport or pick up the kids. Some have regular appointments because they’ve had shoulder
surgery and need a targeted recovery plan. Whatever your reason, don’t ignore your shoulder pain –
it’s likely to only get worse.
What causes shoulder pain?
The shoulder is one of the body’s most flexible and mobile joints. It allows you to move your arm in
many directions, including forwards, backwards, above your head and to the side. Unfortunately,
this amazing flexibility also means that your shoulder can be easily injured. If this is the case, it’s
important to get shoulder pain treatment as quickly as possible.
Shoulder pain affects people of all ages. It can happen as a result of a medical condition such as
arthritis, or as a result of a sport or work injury. The classic signs of a shoulder injury or disease
include pain, swelling, redness, and / or a reduced range of motion.
Depending on your level of activity and life stage, you might be suffering from:
- Damaged to the bones and cartilage
- A rotator cuff pathology
- Joint instability
- Weak shoulder blade muscles
- An imbalance in the shoulder muscles
- Shoulder tension from poor posture (often work related)
- A known trauma, such as a sports injury or fall.
How can a physiotherapist help with shoulder pain treatment?
As a trained physiotherapist, I can help you to pinpoint the source of your shoulder pain. In your first
visit I’ll conduct a complete assessment and try to determine exactly what is causing your pain.
Here’s what I can do:
- Help to relieve your pain
- Guide you on the best exercises to use for your shoulder pain
- Offer manual therapy and soft tissue release techniques
- Assist with rehabilitation and treatment if you have had shoulder surgery or are recovering
from a known injury.
Don’t suffer in silence.
If your shoulder pain has lasted more than a few days, it’s a good idea to come in for shoulder pain
treatment. Ignoring shoulder pain can lead to complications and puts you at risk of further damage.
