Shoulder Pain Osteopathy Treatment Clinic

Shoulder Pain Osteopathy Treatment Centre covering Croydon & the Surrounding areas

Shoulder pain is one of the most common injuries our practitioners treat at our clinic. Our Osteopaths will immediately loosen the joint assisting in the rehabilitation your condition as well as teach you exercises which will help strengthen the effected area. 

Shoulder Pain Osteopathic Treatment

The shoulder joint is possibly the most complex joint in the human body and sacrifices stability for its amazing range of movement. It has an amazing array of ligaments, muscles and tendons to support the joint and to allow it to perform complex movements. Unfortunately, this also means it is very vulnerable to injury.

For our Osteopaths, it is one of the most common joint injuries we see at the clinic. After taking a brief case history, we will perform specific orthopaedic tests to establish which tissues have been injured. We will then start a rehabilitation program aimed at treating the areas affected using massage and stretching techniques to reduce tension and improve range of movement. We will also look at giving you exercises aimed at strengthening or loosening the joint that will help the rehabilitation process.

In more serious cases, X-rays and scans may be require to make a full diagnosis and we may refer you privately or to your GP to have these carried out.

What Shoulder Conditions can our Osteopaths treat?

Shoulder pain is common and can be caused by a number of conditions. These conditions include:
○ Rotator Cuff Injuries – pain in the shoulder or upper arm, particularly when lifting the arm, lying on it or using the sore muscles. It is often a result of repetitive overuse of the arm and shoulder during a sport or activity or the result of a shoulder injury. Age can also play a part.
○ Acromioclavicular joint pain – painful joint on the tip of the shoulder where the collar bone and shoulder blade join.
○ Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis – is the painful and gradual stiffening of the shoulder capsule (the tissue that surrounds your shoulder joint) and the shoulder can often become so stiff and painful that it limits your ability to use your arm in everyday activities.
○ Referred shoulder pain – pain is experienced in an area away from the actual injury of problem. For example, pain in the shoulder which is usually referred from the neck or upper back.
○ Osteoarthritis – progressive wearing away of the cartilage of the joint leading to the two bones of the joint rubbing together causing pain. Patients who have had previous trauma or shoulder surgery are most likely to develop arthritis in later life. Symptoms include swelling, stiffness, aching and sharp stabbing pains.
○ Shoulder instability – dislocation or excessive movement of the shoulder joint.

Biceps Tendon Injuries

Biceps Tendon Injuries is inflammation or irritation of the tendon around the long head of the biceps muscle located at the front of the shoulder. Often the shoulder pain is felt on exercises such as chest press, or biceps curls. The causes may have been from a single event or repetitive overuse.

Osteopathy can help with biceps tendon injuries by using a variety of techniques, such as soft tissue and gentle manipulation.

What are the Benefits of Visiting an Osteopath for Shoulder Pain?

One of the key benefits of the treatment is that it helps to decrease the likelihood of the problem re-occurring.

Once your underlying structure and balance have been restored, you will no longer have the underlying imbalances that can set your shoulder pain off.

The therapy will not only reduce pain, it will also improve your natural movement and help to increase blood flow. All of which helps to restore your feeling of well-being.

Our Osteopaths will also give clear advice on how you can help manage your own condition and you will be given tips on specific exercises you can do to aid your recovery.
