Get Your Shoulder Pain Fixed Today!
A consultation at Back In Balance Clinic will allow us to gain an understanding of the circumstances surrounding your injury or symptoms of pain. We can look at your shoulder impairment holistically, seeing how lifestyle and activity levels may have affected the joint stability, along with possible mechanisms of injury leading to its current condition.
During your first visit there will be consultation discussing the nature of your pain. Secondly examination and assessment to appreciate the severity of your symptoms and carry our any relevant tests. This will allow us to create a treatment plan to give you a speedy recovery.
The therapist will follow this with a thorough physical assessment to confirm which bones and tissues have been affected. Using this approach our experienced therapists can devise a holistic treatment plan that will address not only the immediate pain and injury, but also the surrounding lifestyle issues that contributed to it.
Common causes of shoulder pain include;
- Repetitive Strain or overuse injuries, can be muscle, tendon or ligament
- Rotator cuff muscle tear
- Joint instability issues from muscle imbalance or weakness
- Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
- Nerve impingement, pinching or overstretching
- Shoulder joint subluxation or dislocation
- Stress fractures in either the Humerus, Scapula or Collar bone
Anatomy of the shoulder
The shoulder joint is one of the bodies’ largest joints and by far the most manoeuvrable. It achieves this high degree of flexibility by being a relatively shallow ball and socket joint, where the ball shaped head of the humerus bone at the top of your arm rests in the cup shape of the Glenoid Fossa at the edge of the Scapula. Although this shallow socket allows for the best possible range of movement it also leaves the joint comparatively unstable.
The shoulder compensates for its natural instability by wrapping the adjoining bones in a thick band of cartilage, with broad ligaments anchoring the structure together. The shoulder is then wrapped in multiple bands of muscle to increase stability and facilitate movement. With so many layers of overlapping tissue aligned in multiple directions any impairment to one of these structures can cause pain, weakness or instability. At Back-in-Balance we employ dedicated professionals who understand the complexity of the shoulder joint and have the skills to treat you effectively.
