Shoulder Impingement Syndrome, Rotator Cuff Injuries
The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles in the shoulder which includes the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis. These muscles combine to help improve the stability and function of the shoulder. Weakness, poor posture, overuse or injury can often adversely affect the functioning of these muscles. If you are suffering from pain, weakness or reduced range of motion in the shoulder, you may have this condition. Our physiotherapists can help by employing a detailed analysis of your shoulder movement to help identify the cause and help improve this condition.)
Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
Frozen shoulder describes a stiff, restricted, and painful shoulder condition affecting mostly the middle age population. It can often come as a result of disuse or injury to the shoulder that involves prolonged immobilization. Frozen shoulder has different stages, therefore it is important to have a proper diagnosis by a trained physiotherapist to for the optimal treatment program.
A bursa is a fluid filled sac that exists in various different places of the body to help reduce friction between structures of a joint. Bursitis is the inflammation of this bursa, usually as a result of overuse or improper body mechanics. In the shoulder, this often occurs as a result of throwing and overhead movements. The physiotherapeutic approach to this condition is pain control in the painful stage and restoration of proper mechanics to prevent the pain from coming back.
