Physiotherapy for Shoulder Pain
Your shoulders are made up of three bones (the upper arm bone, shoulder blade and collar bone) and two joints, making them the most flexible parts of your body. The joint is surrounded by muscles and tendons (known as the rotator cuff), that hold them in place and support movement.
However, due to their structure, the joint is prone to injury and more likely to dislocate than others. This is why injuries are very common. So if you’re suffering from any symptoms and are in need of physiotherapy for shoulder pain in Parramatta, contact us online or visit one of our clinics during opening hours, to find out how we can help you.

How Can Physio Help
Your Shoulder Pain?
It’s quite common for shoulder pain to disappear after a few days, but if it doesn’t you should seek physiotherapy treatment. Our physios can help your shoulder pain in many different ways:
Initially, we will focus on pain relief and management to try and make you as comfortable as possible, as we know how much being in constant pain can affect your everyday life.
We’ll then focus on restoring stability in the joint, enabling you to have a full range of movement again.
Once stable, we’ll then work on strengthening your muscles. This is vital to prevent further issues and potentially traumatic events. Injuries like dislocations require continual management and daily exercise to avoid the chance of them dislocating again.
Benefits of Getting
Even though shoulder injuries are common, it’s important to get the correct treatment as soon as possible to prevent any further damage from occurring. Shoulder pain physiotherapy is very effective at combating issues that cause shoulder pain, as your physio will not only perform a thorough assessment but also advise you on a bespoke plan.
You’ll receive an accurate diagnosis, manual therapy treatment and be given a number of different movements, exercises and stretches designed to help your specific injury. Depending on the pain and injury you’re suffering from, without physio treatment, your shoulder condition could significantly deteriorate and you may require surgery.
