Shoulder Pain Physiotherapy Treatment Brisbane

Shoulder Pain Physio Brisbane

Are you experiencing shoulder pain in Brisbane? Whether it’s a persistent discomfort or sudden sharp pain, understanding the various shoulder conditions, their symptoms, and effective management can make a significant difference in your life.

Common Shoulder Conditions

Shoulder pain can often be attributed to specific conditions. Here are some common shoulder conditions:

  1. Rotator Cuff Injuries: The rotator cuff consists of tendons and muscles that stabilize the shoulder joint. Injuries or tears to the rotator cuff can result in pain, weakness, and limited range of motion (Smith & Johnson, 2021).
  2. Shoulder Impingement Syndrome: This condition occurs when the rotator cuff tendons or bursa become compressed between the humerus and the shoulder blade, causing pain, especially during overhead movements (Brown & Davis, 2020).
  3. Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis): Frozen shoulder involves the thickening and tightening of the shoulder joint capsule, leading to stiffness and restricted mobility (Smith & Johnson, 2021).
  4. Shoulder Arthritis: Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can affect the shoulder joint, leading to chronic pain, swelling, and reduced function (Brown & Davis, 2020).
  5. Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa sac within the shoulder joint can result in shoulder pain, especially with repetitive movements (Smith & Johnson, 2021).
  6. Tendinitis: Tendinitis refers to inflammation of the tendons in the shoulder, often causing pain, tenderness, and difficulty raising the arm (Brown & Davis, 2020).

Common Symptoms of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain, depending on the underlying condition, can present with various symptoms, including:

  1. Limited Range of Motion: Shoulder pain often leads to restricted movement of the arm and shoulder joint.
  2. Weakness: You may experience weakness in the affected shoulder, making it challenging to perform everyday tasks.
  3. Stiffness: Stiffness in the shoulder joint can make it difficult to lift or rotate your arm (Williams & Smith, 2020).

Causes of Shoulder Pain

The causes of shoulder pain can vary depending on the specific condition. Some common contributing factors include:

  • Trauma or injury to the shoulder joint.
  • Overuse or repetitive strain from activities or work-related tasks.
  • Age-related degeneration of shoulder structures.
  • Poor posture and improper ergonomic practices.
