Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is regarded as one of the most complex joints in the body and requires a comprehensive assessment by one of our physiotherapists to determine the exact cause of pain and prescribe an extensive individually tailored treatment plan to get your shoulder functioning at its best again.

Common causes include:

  • rotator cuff injury/tear
  • arthritis
  • muscle imbalance/instability issues
  • frozen shoulder
  • bony injury (fracture)
  • bursitis
  • referred pain from the cervicothoracic region.

Shoulder and neck pain are closely linked and often one affects the other, whether you have slept awkwardly and woken with a stiff shoulder or you carry tension from the general stresses of day-to-day life. Our physiotherapists are able to determine the reason for your pain. Often it is easily treated to give you immediate relief.

Symptoms can include:

  • pain in the front, back, top of or side of shoulder that can refer down the arm and into the elbow or hand.
  • pain from the neck referring down into the shoulder blades and into the arm itself
  • weakness in using the arm
  • instability and giving way
  • numbness or ‘pins and needles’ extending into the arm.


Treatment for shoulder pain will include manual therapy treatment such as joint and soft tissue mobilisation, dry needling and muscle energy techniques. An individualised exercise program will be prescribed to both strengthen the weak muscles and mobilise the taut tissues identified in the assessment. The rehabilitation program will be functional in returning to your normal work, sport or general activities.

Client Testimonials

Zoe Rowell

I always have a wonderful experience when visiting! The reception staff are always super-helpful and accommodating and I am always greeted with a smile! The physiotherapist I see gives stretches and strengthening exercises to complete between visits if follow-up appointments are needed! Thanks for your awesome work!

Frank Mount Evelyn

I have been going to this clinic for over 3 years after suffering near-fatal injuries from a car accident. The Physiotherapists who have been treating me have all been very caring, gentle and courteous whilst ensuring all of my needs were met. There was never an issue that they did not overcome with either treatment or the supply of ergonomic devices. My treatment is coming to an end as I now progress onto self-managing my health and wellbeing with regular sessions at the local gym, which they also organised. The administration staff are fantastic people who also treated me with the utmost respect and assistance. Thanks, Team!!!

Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I was referred to Jade, whom I have no hesitation in recommending. She has been able to help through planning and careful management, meaning that frequent appointments were not required. My health was in her best interest. Truly a great service.
