The shoulder joint is one of the most frequently injured areas in our body. It is very complex in its function and structure. By the very nature of its great mobility it doesn’t possess the inherent stability of other joints and therefore is susceptible to injury. Some of the most frequently presented shoulder complaints include tendonitis, sub acromial bursitis, acromioclavicular sprains, labrum lesions and rotator cuff tears.
Treatment to manage these injuries consists of soft tissue therapy, mobilisations, dry needling, graston, heat/ice therapy, interferential therapy, kinesio taping and rehabilitation exercises. Advice and activity modification are vitally important to decrease pain and to help assist long term improvement.
