How We Treat Shoulder Pain

We Help Ease Your Shoulder Pain as quickly as possible using a broad spectrum of treatments that aim to reduce muscle spasm, increase blood flow, increase mobility, decrease inflammation & break up scar tissue. Our treatment processes use a wide variety of methods and are based on a very ‘hands on’ approach to shoulder pain management. 

Rehab Exercises for Those Who Want Them – the best exercises for shoulder pain are usually those that restore and maintain greater postural strength in the long term. Proper function of the large muscle groups behind the shoulder and in the upper back is extremely important for effective shoulder pain management.

Postural Correction For Those Who Need It – to prevent further strain and damage occurring in the shoulder in the long term. People with stubborn shoulder issues virtually always find the root cause is postural. We assist with this, not only by using targeted postural exercise  but also by using machines called Mobilisers, these stretch out the connective tissue of the spine, which helps with postural correction. 

N.B Even in a world with Google reviews choosing from all the treatment options out there can be daunting. We know how frustrating and expensive it can be to spend money on treatments that aren’t working for you. If you aren’t completely happy with our efforts to help you after 1 month of us treating your pain we will stop all treatment and refund your treatment costs no questions asked. We also extend this offer to people with back pain, foot pain, plantar fasciitis & ankle issues *reasonable terms and conditions do apply.

Shoulder Pain FAQ

What are the symptoms of a rotator cuff tear? 

Rotator cuff tears are generally characterised by pain and limited movement of the shoulder,  that was initiated by an injury event. The pain of a rotator cuff tear can be very sharp and have a ‘catchy’ quality with certain movements and in certain positions.

It is impossible to know for sure whether you have a rotator cuff tear, diagnosing rotator cuff tears involves a combination of specific orthopaedic tests and imaging techniques like ultrasound. 

Can a rotator cuff tear heal without surgery?

There are many cases of rotator cuffs settling down and functioning quite happily despite having a tear in one of the tendons. This is most likely because there are multiple tendons,  in the instance of a tear in one tendon stability can still be enforced by the remaining intact tendons. It is not advisable to decline surgery without at least pursuing an extended and professionally prescribed rehab program to strengthen your rotator cuff. It may also be inadvisable to decline survey if you have a major tear that is not improving with attempts at treatment and rehab. 

What is the best treatment for a rotator cuff injury?

The best treatment for rotator cuff injury depends on many factors. The severity and location of the injury, your lifestyle and even your genetics play a role in what will work best for you treatment wise. The smartest way to treat rotator cuff injury is with a ‘flexible’ and ‘conservative’ approach. Flexible in this context means using a variety of treatments and tools to see what works for you (eg. acupuncture, stretching, deep tissue release). Conservative in this context means starting with the least invasive options possible (eg. consider acupuncture and rehab exercises before considering surgery).
