Shoulder Bursitis

Osteopath’s Treating Shoulder Pain

The Osteopath’s at our Glen Iris clinic are frequently treating clients with various shoulder complaints. Located within Goodlife Glen Iris gym we see A LOT of shoulder problems. The shoulder is one of our more complex joints, as it allows movement to occur in so many different planes of motion. This is also the reason why it is also one of the more challenging body parts to treat effectively and successfully. It is not uncommon for the easiest of tasks such as brushing your hair, getting dressed, or simply rolling over in bed, to become extremely painful and uncomfortable when you have shoulder pain. Which is why our therapist take such an active roll in your treatment. Reducing your stiffness, improving your range of motion, as well as arming you with corrective exercises to help you self manage your condition. We guide you through your treatment program, allowing you to get back to doing the things you love to do. Golf, swimming, playing with your children, or simply getting dressed – all pain free.

Common shoulder injuries we see daily:

  • Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

  • Rotator Cuff – Impingement
