Shoulder Pain & Injury Treatment

IS YOUR SHOULDER PAIN SLOWING YOU DOWN?

 Our Shoulder is our most mobile Joint. It’s also one of the most Unstable.  Subjected to Repetitive Strain, Dislocation, and Tendonitis. It’s then no surprise then, that it’s one of the most common injuries we see in our Glen Iris clinic. 

Common Conditions We See With Shoulder Pain:

  • Impingement & Bursitis

  • Tendonitis and Labral Tear Injuries

  • Rotator Cuff Injuries & Frozen Shoulder

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Trauma ( Dislocation) & Referred Pain from Neck/ Upper Back

  • Muscle Strains

  • A/C or Clavicle Injuries and Trauma

 Approximately 70% of us will be affected by some form of shoulder pain over the course of our life (1).  With so many different causes of shoulder pain, it’s essential to get the diagnosis right to ensure your treatment is effective and long-lasting.   

Don’t become another statistic! It’s time to pick up the phone and ask us for help. 

ARE YOU CONSTANTLY TAKING PAIN MEDICATION FOR YOUR SHOULDER PAIN?

Masking your symptoms with pain medication is NOT a solution to your shoulder pain. Nor is the quick fix of a steroid injection. These interventions only serve to mask the problem. Treating the CAUSE of the pain is the only long term and healthy solution. 

COMMON CAUSES OF YOUR SHOULDER PAIN:

Traumatic injuries can result in dislocation. While biomechanical problems and muscle weakness can lead to impaired movement and pain. The 2 most common causes of shoulder pain we see are:

IMPINGEMENT:

Poor function and altered mechanics, in conjunction with repetitive or stressful actions, can result in the tendons becoming trapped and irritated.

TENDONITIS:

Overuse and weakness in the Rotator Cuff can lead to inflammation and pain of the tendon.

To achieve LONG TERM results we need to understand WHY these structures are being irritated.
