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 shoulder 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 shoulder joint is prone to injury and more likely to dislocate than other joints. This is why shoulder injuries are very common. So if you’re suffering and in need of physiotherapy for shoulder pain in Sydney, contact us today to find out how we can help you.

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.

How Can Physiotherapy
Help You?

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 you in a number of different ways:

Pain Management

Initially, we will focus on pain 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 your shoulder joint, enabling you to have a full range of movement again.


Once stable, we’ll then work on strengthening your shoulder muscles. This is vital to prevent further issues and potentially traumatic events. Injuries like shoulder dislocation require continual management and daily shoulder exercise to avoid the chance of the complex joint from dislocating again.

Symptoms of
Shoulder Pain

If you are suffering from any of the below symptoms you should seek professional physiotherapy treatment:

  • Persistent pain and stiffness that is showing no sign of going away
  • Acute injury and pain that intensifies as a result of any shoulder movement
  • Any tingling or numbing sensation
  • Sudden, sharp pain and unable to move your arm
  • Pain on top of the shoulder
  • Any swelling or muscle weakness around the shoulder area

Shoulder symptoms can also be present in a number of other different areas including the neck, upper back, shoulder blade and collarbone area.
