Overcome Shoulder Pain, Regain Strength & Mobility Through Expert Physiotherapy

Are you tired of the constant pain or lack of mobility in your shoulder?

Whether it’s a sharp pain during certain movements or a dull, persistent discomfort, shoulder issues can be incredibly debilitating.

Many of our clients have been in your shoes, and we’ve helped them regain mobility and live pain-free, returning to the hobbies and sports they love.

Symptoms and Understanding Your Shoulder Pain

Your shoulder is one of the most versatile joints in your body. It’s a complex network of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that work in harmony to provide the remarkable range of motion that we often take for granted. But when something goes wrong, it can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Persistent pain or discomfort
  • Reduced mobility or stiffness
  • Difficulty in carrying objects or raising your arm
  • A limited or even inability to play sports
  • Swelling or tenderness around the joint

These issues can stem from a variety of causes, from sports injuries to ageing, overuse, or even poor posture.

The Diagnosis and Assessment Process: Your Path to Understanding

At Bounty Physio, our thorough diagnostic and assessment process is paramount to our approach. We understand that each person is unique, and their shoulder pain is no exception.

Our physiotherapists go beyond the obvious symptoms to unearth the root cause of your shoulder pain and design a tailored treatment plan. Here is our step-by-step process:

Step 1: Initial Consultation
We will gather information about your medical history, lifestyle, physical activities, and the details of your shoulder pain – its onset, duration, intensity, and the factors that alleviate or aggravate it.

Step 2: Physical Examination
Next, we perform a comprehensive physical examination. This includes assessing your shoulder’s range of motion, strength, and flexibility. This may also extend to your neck, upper back, and other joints to determine if they are contributing to your shoulder pain.

Step 3: Special Tests
Specific orthopaedic tests may be used to evaluate the integrity of your shoulder joint and the surrounding soft tissues. These tests are designed to provoke your symptoms in a controlled manner to identify the structures that may be responsible for your pain.

Step 4: Functional Assessment
We will assess your functional movements that are relevant to your daily activities or sports. By observing how you move, we can identify any faulty movement patterns, muscle imbalances, or compensation strategies that may be contributing to your shoulder problem.

Step 5: Diagnosis and Communication
Once the assessment is complete, we discuss the findings with you. We will explain the likely cause of your shoulder pain, and how physiotherapy can help.

Step 6: Personalised Treatment Plan
Based on the diagnosis, we will create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. This plan will encompass various therapeutic interventions, exercises, and possibly lifestyle modifications.

Step 7: Regular Reassessment
Throughout your treatment journey, we will reassess your shoulder regularly. This helps us monitor your progress, adjust your treatment as necessary, and ensure that we are always moving towards your goals.

We understand that shoulder pain can be complex and frustrating, but with the right treatment and guidance, we are confident we can help you get back to doing what you love – pain-free.

Treatment and Ongoing Management

Our main objective is to alleviate your pain and enhance your shoulder function, while empowering you with knowledge and strategies for self-management.

Here’s what our treatment and ongoing management typically entail:

Step 1: Immediate Pain Relief
Initial treatments focus on reducing your pain and inflammation. This may involve techniques like manual therapy, electrotherapy, dry needling, or taping. We may also guide you on the appropriate use of rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), and over-the-counter medications.

Step 2: Mobility Restoration
Once your pain is under control, we work on restoring your shoulder’s range of motion. This is achieved through specific mobility exercises, joint mobilisations, and stretching techniques. We also address any restrictions in your neck and upper back that may be impacting your shoulder movement.

Step 3: Strength and Control
The next phase of treatment focuses on strengthening your shoulder muscles and improving neuromuscular control. This involves targeted strengthening exercises for the muscles surrounding your shoulder, including your rotator cuff and scapular stabilisers.

Step 4: Functional and Sports-Specific Rehabilitation
As your strength and control improve, we progress to more functional and sports-specific exercises. This could range from lifting a kettle to overhead throwing movements, depending on your individual goals.

Step 5: Prevention and Self-Management
Throughout your treatment, we educate you about your shoulder condition and how to prevent future problems. This includes guidance on posture, ergonomic setups, activity modification, and a home exercise program for you to maintain your shoulder health in the long term.

Step 6: Regular Follow-Ups
We provide regular follow-ups and reassessments to ensure that your treatment remains effective and is adjusted as needed.

Our team are committed to helping you overcome your shoulder issue and get back to your best. With our expert guidance and your active involvement, we’re confident that we can achieve great results together.
