Shoulder Pain Treatment

Shoulder joint is a complex joint formed by the upper arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder blade bone (scapula). It reinforced and supported by a wide range of muscles and ligaments. Considerably, the most mobile joint and is encapsulated in a sheath of connective tissue (shoulder joint capsule). Its structure and function is what makes it more prone to pain and injury.

Shoulder dysfunction is caused as a result of malfunctioning in any of these structures, ageing, degeneration, biomechanical barriers, overuse leading to inflammation and pain, overhead activities profusely in those involved in sports like tennis, swimming etc, and injury or direct trauma to the joint. The manifestations include pain, stiffness, restricted motion, reduced muscle strength and deduction in overall function. It is thus very crucial to adequately deliver exercises, not to stretch too much or too little, to overcome the symptoms.

Shoulder rehabilitation involves precise assessment, diagnosis and designing a protocol that suits the best and offers well being to the patient. Our physiotherapists offer a wide range of therapies that includes stretching, joint mobilization, relaxation, strengthening and to return to function regimes. Mobility i.e. range of motion restoration is the primary aim of the rehabilitation followed by conditioning of the muscles involved.

Your Question, Expert answers for Shoulder Pain

Immobilizing the shoulder may worsen the condition. Please consult an expert first.

  • Follow exercise as set by the physiotherapist.
  • Avoid performing strenuous or intense exercises using gym equipment by yourself.
  • Maintain good posture; avoid slouching and keep shoulders back.
  • Apply hot and cold packs as directed.
  • Stretching exercises to increase the range and maintain flexibility.
  • Strengthening
  • Posture correction to prevent impingement.
  • Pain relief: Heat/ice or other electrotherapeutic modalities.

If left alone, it can heal on its own in 1.5 to 2 years. This can be sped up with physiotherapy.

Also called adhesive capsulitis, it happens when the structures around the shoulder joint become inflamed. They gradually get tighter and more painful, restricting movement. It is more common in those who are diabetic.

In the initial stages, there will be pain, which is constant and may be worse at night.

This is followed by difficulty moving. Most people experience difficulty in taking their arm behind their back (reaching for a wallet) or touching the top of their head. Raising your arm might be difficult.

We had such a satisfying experience with the highly trained and qualified Physio Expert from Healyos. Yogita Hande was appointed as the physio expert for my father who went through bilateral knee replacement surgery, and all the sessions conducted by her were really helpful and effective for the recovery. Highly recommended..

I had suffered fracture of my left hip and post- hospitalisation was referred to Healyos for physiotherapy at home. Priyanka Patil has been my physiotherapist all through the recovery period. Her knowledge, care and personal attention has indeed been the cornerstone of my return to health. Highly recommend her for those requiring good physiotherapy care.
