Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is incredibly important in day to day function, which is why a sore or injured shoulder can be so frustrating and debilitating. The shoulder joint is a complex structure with many different potential pain generators, such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bursa. This is why it's important to have an individualised rehab plan that takes into account the potential source of pain. Shoulder injuries often occur as a result of overuse, repetitive motions or increased load on the shoulder, but can also occur due to trauma such as sporting injuries or motor vehicle accidents. Common symptoms of shoulder injuries include sharp or aching pain, stiffness, lack of movement and difficulty doing day to day tasks such as dressing or cleaning. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms we recommend booking an appointment to see one of our therapists.

How Can We Help?

While shoulder injuries can be painful and frustrating, they often respond well to physiotherapy treatment. Our therapists will go through a range of assessments with you in order to determine the factors contributing to your pain and develop an individualised treatment and management plan to address these factors. We will then guide you through the rehab process, from early stages where the focus is reducing pain and discomfort to later stages aimed at regaining strength and function through targeted shoulder exercises.

  • Rotator cuff pain 

  • Bursitis
