Many people suffer shoulder injuries, and they can happen for a number of different reasons – falling onto an outstretched hand (a ‘FOOSH’ injury), lifting something too heavy, repetitive movements or sustaining a trauma to the shoulder. There are many structures that can be damaged in the shoulder (it being the most complex joint in the body) – including the rotator cuff group of tendons, subacromial bursa, shoulder ligaments, joint capsule, and all the muscles and associated joints about the shoulder.
Common shoulder conditions we see and treat include:
Rotator Cuff Tears
Post Surgical Rehabilitation
Treatment type varies and can range from mobilisation, soft tissue therapies, ultrasound, shockwave therapy, taping, dry needling and rehabilitative exercises. If further imaging or assessments are required we can organise these directly or in conjunction with your general medical practitioner.
