Many shoulder patients may complain of pain, joint stiffness and/or instability (clicking).
These can be caused by a various set of causes, for example, muscles strains, tendinopathy, arthritis, joint instability, hypermobility, ligament sprains and tears. This is particularly common among the working population, racket sports players, throwing sports players.
Each shoulder pain is unique to each individual but often has a similar underlying problem(s), such as rotator cuff weakness and poor sitting posture.
At Prohealth Sports and Spinal, our physiotherapists can assess your shoulder and provide treatments for immediate relief with mobilisation, soft tissue release and/or acupuncture, and more importantly, tailor an individualised home exercise programme to match your needs.
This will include patient education to empower you on how you can self-manage in long term and on how you can get back to your normal activity of daily living or sports.
