Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain has become extremely common over recent years as a result of frequent computer and smartphone usage and increased sedentary lifestyle.  Shoulder pain is often very complex. As a result, shoulder injuries can be more difficult to treat.


We at ONE HEALTH will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and decide on a course of treatment.


Common Shoulder injuries include:

  • rotator cuff tears

  • tendonitis

  • shoulder impingement (subacromial bursitis) – when shoulder tendons are trapped and compressed during shoulder movements

  • frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) – when the shoulder capsule swells and stiffens, restricting mobility

  • postural tension

  • referred pain


Symptoms of shoulder pain may include:

  • 'catching' sensation when raising the arm or reaching

  • sharp pain when moving your arm

  • weakness in your arm or grip

  • throbbing and aching in shoulder whilst sleeping

  • pain radiating down the arm

  • neck and shoulder stiffness


We can help your shoulder pain by:

  • improving muscular flexibility in the shoulder area        

  • improving range of joint motion in the mid back, neck, shoulder blade and shoulder

  • addressing postural strains and bad habits

  • providing advice on maintaining flexibility and strength around the shoulder region

  • providing exercises for stretching and rehabilitation


We may also refer you to a GP for any additional medications or treatment.
