When should I get treatment? 

Shoulder pain can be many things from niggly, to severe and debilitating. Either way if you feel like it’s not doing something like it should, that’s when you should speak to someone who can help you manage it

What treatments help?

We’ll start with assessment – this includes talking to you about what you can and can’t do, as well as a movement and strength assessment. From here, treatment is a mix of techniques which can include improving range of motion, releasing muscles or tips to manage the discomfort as it gets better. Shoulders have many different features and the same condition can be treated differently in two people. More than anything, strength is crucial here and that makes exercise a large part of treatment – whether it’s home stretches or gym strengthening, we find this is one of the best methods to improve your shoulder problem. 

In some cases, you may be referred for scans or on to a specialist to have different forms of treatment, such as corticosteroid injections, hydrodilatation, or surgery.
