CAN AN OSTEOPATH HELP

WITH SHOULDER PAIN?

If you suffer from sudden or recurring shoulder pain, you’re likely aware of the effects this type of pain can have on your daily schedule and aspiring fitness plans.

We use the joints in our shoulders every day and almost consistently, so pain in this area can really wreak havoc on your day-to-day, and at times, become rather debilitating. From picking up a load of washing to working on your summer body, these common tasks can be difficult to complete with shoulder pain in tow.
Tackling this pain requires proper treatment and a full-body approach, and it can sometimes make matters worse trying to fix the pain yourself. Often, doing ad-hoc shoulder stretches and over-working the related muscles could be prolonging the pain rather than fixing it. Shoulder pain should be treated on a case by case basis and assessed by a professional so that the advised healing can relate exactly to your unique condition and body type.
Osteopaths are well-educated in all matters of shoulder pain and can help to ease this disrupting pain with hands-on treatment and specific exercise techniques.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SHOULDER CONDITIONS OSTEOPATHS TREAT?

How can osteopaths treat shoulder pain?

Treat the core issue

Osteopaths can assess the issue at hand and make sure that the treatment they suggest is catered to your condition and pain felt in and around the shoulder muscles.

Improve mobility

Using professional techniques and a stretching schedule, osteopaths work on healing the muscles and joints in your shoulder to recuperate the mobility function and get you back to a more comfortable regime.

A shoulder to lean on

It’s hard to know where to start when understanding the ‘how, where, why, who’ aspect of shoulder pain. An osteopath will work with you to help you understand all of these questions so that you can gain a better understanding of the main culprit and the steps required to heal.

Post-treatment guidance

To ensure shoulder pain doesn’t hold a permanent place in your life, it can help to know tips and tricks for managing this pain in the future. So that it doesn’t persist or resurface regularly, an osteopath will give you specific stretches that you can do at home or later on if you begin to feel any onset pain in this area.

X-rays, scans and other tests

It may be surprising to learn that osteopathy clinics can also offer support by requesting essential x-rays, scans or other required tests, so that they can pinpoint the exact cause and treat accordingly. And, if required an osteopath will refer you to your GP for further assessment.
With all of the above methods, professional osteopath guidance can help shoulder pain drastically, and like most things, getting the right advice can make a huge impact on the healing process.
