Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder Injuries

Most patients with shoulder discomfort complain of pain, joint stiffness or instability (clicking). These can be caused by a variety of reasons, for example,

  • Muscle strains
  • Tendinopathy
  • Arthritis
  • Joint instability
  • Hypermobility
  • Ligament sprains and tears

Shoulder pain is particularly common among the working population, racket sports players, and throwing sports players. It is unique to each individual but often has common causes, such as rotator cuff weakness or poor sitting posture.

Our physiotherapists will assess your shoulder and provide treatments for immediate relief including mobilization, soft tissue release, and acupuncture. Additionally, they will tailor an individualized home exercise routine to relieve your pain. This will include exercise tips and tricks to help you manage your pain in the long term and a step-by-step explanation of how you can return to your daily routine or resume doing sports.
