Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. This mobility comes at the expense of the bony stability present in most other joints of the body, meaning that your shoulder is significantly more reliant on the coordination of the muscles of your shoulder to function. Anything that interrupts this coordination or the activity of the shoulder muscles is likely to have a large impact on shoulder function and pain
Some examples of common conditions affecting the shoulder include
- Rotator cuff tears or irritation
- Frozen shoulder
- Bursitis of the shoulder
Each of these conditions requires specific management, meaning that an accurate diagnosis of your problem is essential in order to achieve good treatment outcomes.
The Physiotherapists at Essential Health Plus will be happy will be happy to help diagnose and treat your shoulder problem and take you out of your pain towards your peak musculoskeletal performance.
