Physiotherapy as a Lane Cove Shoulder Injury Treatment

The shoulder blade (scapula), arm bone (humerus), and collar bone (clavicle) make up the complex ball and socket joint that is the shoulder. Ligaments help support the shoulder while muscular attachments help move it. The shoulder joint is extremely mobile, which allows people to move and reach in many directions.

There are also many ways to injure the shoulder. Swimming, throwing a baseball, and other overhead activities can cause the rotator cuff or bicep tendons to become pinched. Poor posture can place excessive stress on the shoulder and cause pain. Auto accidents, falls, and other trauma can also injure the shoulder. And sometimes, shoulder pain occurs for no apparent reason.

If you’re in need of Lane Cove shoulder injury treatment, be aware that physiotherapy can be very helpful. At Burns Bay Physiotherapy, you can meet with a physiotherapist who will evaluate and treat your shoulder pain. Your initial assessment will include a number of questions about your pain such as what type of pain it is; it’s location, and what makes it better or worse. Treatment may include passive physiotherapy such as massage and active exercises that you perform at home to maximise the mobility and strength of your shoulder.

For the best results, always follow your physio’s instructions carefully. Be sure to ask any questions you might have. At Burns Bay Physiotherapy, we genuinely care about each and every person we treat, and we will work with you to develop a Lane Cove shoulder injury treatment tailored to your specific needs.
