Shoulder pain and injuries are often the result of over-head or throwing sports and activities, repetitive or awkward lifting, or wear and tear. Fay Pedler Clinic can help you resolve your shoulder problems.
Chronic or Frozen Shoulder Pain
The shoulder is a mobile and flexible joint that is capable of lifting large loads. It is this impressive functionality that leaves it vulnerable to injury. Shoulder injuries are often the result of over-head or throwing sports and activities, repetitive or awkward lifting, or wear and tear. Pain and injury in the shoulder can be the result of several different conditions, these include:
- Impingement syndromes
- Rotator cuff injury
- Shoulder instability or dislocation
- Frozen shoulder
- General wear and tear from sports or overuse
At Fay Pedler Physiotherapy, we are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder conditions. We understand that every shoulder is unique and requires an individual course of treatment and rehabilitation. For example, an unstable or dislocated shoulder needs specific attention given to the strength and control of the scapular muscles before general strengthening can begin. A shoulder with impingement pain needs a full and careful correction of rotation cuff muscle balance to prevent compression of the subacromial space. A stiff shoulder needs to be stretched, mobilised and re-trained.
Treatment of the shoulder complex requires an experienced Physiotherapist who can test the movements and stretches of the shoulder, and come to an accurate diagnosis of the problem. Physiotherapy treatment can then focus on the core problem.
