Shoulder Pain West Ryde, Sydney

Providing tailored solutions for shoulder pain conditions with high-quality physio care.


The Struggle of Living With Shoulder Pain

We need our shoulders. That fact won’t come as a surprise, of course. Once you start to experience pain in your shoulder, however, you’re bound to realise just how deeply we rely on this structure to go about our daily lives. Throwing a ball, scratching your back, reaching the top shelf, carrying your belongings… all these tiny acts rely on a well-functioning and pain-free shoulder.

Mobility comes with a cost. Your shoulder is a complex structure of several joints, tendons, and muscles that provide a wide range of motion in the arm. When your shoulder is overexerted or damaged, then pain and inflammation will occur. Suddenly, your day-to-day life is a painful and difficult feat. Minor tasks like driving and exercising can become extraordinarily challenging and painful… but you don’t need to live with constant discomfort. Working with an experienced physiotherapist may help to address your pain and get your life back on track.

Common Causes and Symptoms of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be the result of many, many different injuries and conditions. Most problems with the shoulder fall into five major categories:

  • Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendonitis) or tendon tear
  • Instability
  • Arthritis
  • Fracture (broken bone)
  • Overuse

Depending on which of these has led to your pain, your pain might be experienced differently. The pain may be dull and achy, or sharp and severe. The onset could be gradual or sudden, but likely the discomfort will be triggered or worsened by everyday activities and use. You may find that your shoulder pain is accompanied by decreased mobilisation, muscle spasms, shoulder or arm weakness, swelling, stiffness, or numbness.

Figuring out the specific cause that has led to your pain is essential to effectively treat your pain. The structure of your shoulder is an intricate and complex thing, and there are many contributing factors to take into consideration when finding the right treatment path. Working with a physio is the best way to find out whether your pain is a result of a specific injury, overexertion, or another condition altogether.

Treatment for Shoulder Pain With NDPE

Treating shoulder pain with physiotherapy is all about restoring function to the joints and muscles of your shoulder, all while improving strength and reducing tension. The aim should not simply be to get rid of pain. The end result is to improve movement, prevent further damage, and address the root cause of the pain.

At Northern Districts Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic, our treatments are tailored to best suit each individual case. Typically, our treatment plans will consist of soft tissue and joint mobilisation, strengthening exercises, stretching, and heat/cold therapy. Everything we do starts with a thorough and comprehensive shoulder consultation, identifying the exact underlying cause of your shoulder pain. From there, we can begin a course of corrective care! Your treatment will be entirely targeted to your needs and goals.
