The Shoulder is a complex and challenging joint.

The Shoulder joint combines a large range of movement and flexibility with great speed and strength.

One of the biggest challenges in the Shoulder is that the rotator cuff musculature must provide not only movement but stability.A difficult balancing act for a relatively loose ball and socket joint.

Shoulder injuries can be unforgiving but let us help you solve the puzzle and resolve your pain.

Shoulder Rotator Cuff Injury – Impingement

A common example of a shoulder injury

Shoulder Rotator Cuff Impingement

  • Sudden onset of pain in the shoulder or increasing over time.
  • Often may be felt with activity but can increase afterwards.
  • Pain with repetitive activity, often with lifting arm out to side or overhead i.e. hair washing, swimming, throwing, overhead mark.
  • Pain may affect sleep.

Shoulder Rotator Cuff Impingement

  • When the arm is held out to the side and away from the body, the shoulder tendons and bursa get squeezed
  • Overuse, repetitive movements in particular with the arm moved overhead or positioned at shoulder height eg. with long distance driving
  • Sudden unaccustomed use or change in training
  • Injury – a direct blow or fall
  • Poor posture
  • Poor Upper Body Fitness – Weak Muscles and sloppy joints

The challenge of the shoulder is solved with:

  • Expedient treatment, don’t wait with a shoulder injury.
  • A combination of reducing and preventing inflammation.
  • Regaining movement with specific stretching/mobilisation techniques.
  • Specific, individualised exercise programs. We make sure that your pain resolves, function and strength returns and your personal goals are met in a time efficient manner.
