Some of the most common shoulder conditions include frozen shoulders, rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis (tendons become inflamed), dislocated shoulders and broken arms.
Shoulder pain could also be as a result of tight muscles, poor posture, trapped nerves or even just sleeping in an awkward position. Some shoulder pain can be caused by carrying heavy bags every day – especially shoulder bags that can put a lot of pressure on one side and put stress on your tendons leading to tendinitis. Did you know the average woman’s handbag weight is 5.2lbs? That’s five bags of sugar! Experts recommend that ideally, we should not be carrying more than 2.2lbs.
There are plenty of day to day activities that can cause shoulder pain that we don’t even realise such as poor posture, hunching over our desk or phone, carrying heavy items or exercising without warming up.
How can you treat my shoulder pain?
There are a number of ways we can work with you through your shoulder pain treatment to help relieve the pain you are feeling. Shoulder pain can be extremely debilitating and difficult to ignore when it flairs up, so we know it can be important to be able to ease the discomfort.
While hot and cold therapy and painkillers can provide short term relief at home, physiotherapy will be able to help treat the cause of the problem and allow you to build strength and movement in your shoulder once again.
Our specialist shoulder injury treatment will take you through a series of exercises and stretches to help you regain comfortable movement in your shoulder once again. Once you have comfortable full movement, we’ll work with you to build strength in your shoulders so you can get back to exercise or offset further injury in day to day life.
We’ll also teach you movements you can practise every day at home, to help you to reach your recovery goal and carry on keeping the area mobile and comfortable. If you want to get back to a particular sport, we can work with you to practise movements and be able to return to it without causing further injury or affecting your skills as much as we can.
If you’re recovering from shoulder injury treatment surgery – we’ll help you with your rehabilitation and help you get back to your best. We know how disruptive and disheartening it can be following surgery but we have years of knowledge and experience to help you regain full-movement and ideally back to your pre-injury best.
