Many patients experience shoulder pain. Often the diagnosis is Rotator Cuff Tear or Frozen Shoulder, and patients are referred to the Orthopaedic surgeon for surgery. There are many causes of shoulder pain, and physiotherapy offers a great option when trying to avoid surgery.

Internationally, doctors prefer to speak about ‘Rotator Cuff related pain’. Many shoulders will respond well to physiotherapy and strengthening exercises, thereby avoiding the need for surgery. Our aim in treatment is to reduce pain, improve function and strength, and in so doing, give you your life back! Your neck can also influence the shoulder, and often when the discs in your spine are unhappy, you can experience shoulder pain. Your physiotherapist is fully equipped and experienced to make a differential diagnosis in order to determine the most effective course of treatment. Please visit our practice with your shoulder (and neck) pain so that we can assist you in finding the best solution specifically for you!
