Shoulder pain and injury is common. Your shoulder is the most mobile of all your joints. Just think about how much it can actually move.
The reason for this movement is a very small joint contact zone. This essentially means that your shoulder is quite unstable. That is why your shoulder muscles are so vital to a normally functioning shoulder.
In most cases, if you are suffering shoulder pain it is because your muscles are simply not strong enough or they are uncoordinated.
Luckily, both of these dysfunctions can be normalised after a quality assessment and injury-specific exercises.
Most shoulder pain is caused by one of the following categories:
- Rotator Cuff
- Bursitis Shoulder
- Shoulder Dislocation (Instability)
- Frozen Shoulder
- Shoulder Arthritis
Common Shoulder Pain & Injury Conditions
Researchers have discovered that managing your shoulder injury with physiotherapy is usually successful. Normally, you have two options: non-operative or a surgical approach. Your condition will dictate which option is best for you at this time. Non-operative care is also referred to as conservative rehabilitation.
If shoulder surgery is required, then your physiotherapist may undertake:
- pre-operative rehabilitation to either trial a non-operative treatment approach or to condition and prepare your body for a surgical procedure.
- post-operative physiotherapy - to regain your range of movement, strength, speed and function both to normal.
PhysioWorks physiotherapists have a special interest and an excellent working relationship with Brisbane's leading shoulder surgeons to provide you with both conservative and operative rehabilitation options to ensure that you will attain the best outcome for your shoulder injury.
