Shoulder injuries are a mixture of damage to muscles, ligaments, joints, bursa, labrum or nerves around your shoulder. Here’s a few shoulder conditions our practitioners are great at treating. There are different types of structures around your shoulder, each one with it’s own set of signs and symptoms. First we must establish the extent of the damage to the tissue, then we know exactly what we’re dealing with. Most shoulder injuries have more than one problem at the same time, the question is which one takes priority. Spreading pain over your shoulder into your arm or back is more concerning than sharp stinging pain at a specific point. When nerves gets involved resolving the problem may take much longer.
Our years of practice has shown us that most shoulder injuries are quite an easy fix, but the tendency of people to leave it for too long causes a knock-on effect breaking one system after another. Months down the line, and it just gets worse. Understanding the scope of the problem directly impacts recovery and healing time, the faster you know what you’re dealing with, the faster you’ll be able to control the situation. Rather get a accurate diagnosis sooner rather than later.
Here’s our catalogue of articles describing how our practitioners approach shoulder injuries. From frozen shoulder to torn biceps muscles. Keep in mind that most shoulder conditions involves a combination of damage to different structures at the same time. For example, A fracture is always has some form of ligament sprains and muscle tears that accompanies it, apart from the obvious crack in the bone. Neglecting these ‘less obvious’ tissue damage usually causes delayed healing or even poor recovery. After the bone is fused, your muscles must move your arm, so we must keep you active within certain boundaries to guarantee they’re up for it. When diagnosing shoulder pain, we determine the hierarchy of priority and focus our treatment on that.
