Physiotherapy for Shoulder Pain
The shoulder is one of the most often injured joints in the human body. These injuries can be wear and tear related, or may result from trauma, whether they be sporting, recreational or occupational.
It is also the most complicated joint from a biomechanical point of view. The shoulder physiotherapists at Melbourne Sports Physiotherapy have the special skills and expertise to address all your shoulder injuries, whether they be post-operative, wear and tear, or from a fall or trauma.
The shoulder consists of some clever engineering, as it needs to be strong, yet be very mobile at the same time.
The shoulder is theoretically made up of three joints. The scapula-thoracic isn’t a true joint, as there is not a true bony linkage, but the shoulder blade swings on the rib cage, acting like a joint.
Secondly, is the Acromio-Clavicular joint, or most commonly known as the AC joint. This is the bony articulation between the collarbone and the shoulder blade. This is the bony linkage between the arm and the spine. Finally, the most important joint is the gleno-humeral joint, or the ball and socket joint, as it is most commonly known.
The ball and socket provides the movement and stability to the shoulder girdle. The rotator cuff tendons hold the ball into the socket.
Melbourne Sports Physiotherapy has the capacity to assist you with all your shoulder screening for upper limb sports such as tennis, swimming, throwing sports, golf, baseball and gymnastics.
