Treatment for Shoulder Pain and Injuries
Are you experiencing shoulder pain or discomfort? At Prohealth Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy, we have experience in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of various shoulder injuries. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists is here to provide you with personalized care and help you recover from your shoulder condition.
Understanding Shoulder Injuries
Most patients who have experienced shoulder discomfort often complain of pain, stiffness in the joint or instability (clicking). These can be caused by a variety of reasons such as:
- Muscle strains
- Tendinopathy (tendon disorders that cause swelling or pain)
- Joint instability
- 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. Regardless of your situation, we understand that shoulder pain can significantly impact your daily activities and sports performance.
Our physiotherapists will assess your shoulder and provide treatments for immediate relief. Our treatments include mobilization, soft tissue release, acupuncture, shockwave therapy and more.
Additionally, our physiotherapists will tailor an individualized home exercise routine for you 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.
