Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be quite complex, as the shoulder has 4 different joints. The shoulder is formed where the humerus meets the glenoid socket on the shoulder blade. The shoulder blade then attaches to the rib cage at the back and can move up and down, and side to side as we move our arms. The collar bone will attach to the shoulder joints at the front. The shoulder then acts as a base that which our elbows and arms function.
Cartilage and ligaments work together to stabilise the shoulder. Deeper muscles such as the rotator cuff work to stabilise the shoulder joint too. More powerful muscles can also create a larger range of movements. Sof tissues help to reduce friction in the shoulder. There are many nerves that pass around the shoulder. These nerves travel down the arm to innervate the skin and muscles Here at Physio Hub, we will conduct a thorough examination of your specific problem and we can conduct physical testings to aid in your diagnosis. We can then create a treatment plan to get your shoulder back up and moving again. If necessary, we may refer you for further testing such as MRI, ultrasound, blood tests, or X-rays. There are many conditions involved in shoulder pain. Common conditions can include:
Stiffness in the shoulder
Shoulder impingement
Rotator cuff injuries
Acromioclavicular injuries
Shoulder fractures
Dislocation and instability in the shoulder
