Shoulder pain is a common problem that can result from a variety of causes, including overuse injuries, rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, dislocation and instability, and arthritis. Physiotherapy can be effective in improving shoulder mobility and strength, reducing pain and inflammation and preventing future injuries.
The initial consultation will begin with an assessment to determine the cause of the pain and any underlying issues that may be contributing to it. Treatment may include hands on treatment and we will then also provide a personalised treatment plan that includes exercises and stretches designed to improve range of motion, strength and stability in the shoulder.
The type of treatment and exercises you receive will be determined by your individual needs and goals. Depending also on your assessment and how your symptoms progress, we can advise as to whether you require any investigations or an onward referral. If you are experiencing shoulder pain, it’s always a good idea to consult with a physiotherapist to determine the cause and develop an appropriate management plan.
