Shoulder problems are some of the most common injuries osteopaths encounter and can cover a wide range of diagnoses such as rotator cuff problems and frozen shoulder. As the shoulder joint is one of the most mobile peripheral joints in the body it can be subject to overstrain and instability.
Shoulder pain symptoms can vary. Your symptoms may include sharp pain on movement, or stiffness and discomfort throughout the working day. Symptoms might also include a sensation of weakness or pins and needles radiating into the arm and neck.
Osteopaths are trained to provide appropriate diagnosis and treatment with the aim of relieving pain, restoring range of motion and restoring the shoulder joint to normal function. During your consultation at Osteopath Sutherland Shire, you may also be given appropriate strengthening exercises to improve recovery and restore normal function of the shoulder.
