One of the most common injuries we see at Northern Beaches Physiotherapy is shoulder pathology. This type of injury commonly occurs NOT with big trauma, but over period of time with wear and tear. You will likely first dismiss this pain and then ignore it again as “ I haven’t done any injury” and “it will get better”.
Our experience is that these injuries don’t fix themselves!! The most common cause of restricted and painful shoulders are partial thickness tears of the Rotator Cuff tendons.
Risk factors for the development of this problem include:
Treatment for this injury includes mobilisation of the shoulder joint, massage, dry needling and stretching to help settle the affected area.
A rehabilitation program is then devised to treat the affected area and causes of the injury.
To help prevent this happening to you try these simple exercises.
If you do experience this type of injury please seek treatment as soon as possible, for the earlier treatment is provided – the better chance of a fast and full recovery.
If you need help with your shoulder pain – please give us a call on 6654 0244 and get your problems fixed NOW.
