Shoulder

Shoulder

Shoulder pain is a widespread and significant issue reported and experienced by both the sporting and non-sporting population. Acute shoulder injuries occur following an incident or accident on the sporting field, the workplace or in everyday life at home. Overhead athletes, workers or those who place repeated strain and load on the shoulder will develop more chronic presentations with recurring or longer lasting shoulder pain.

Chronic shoulder pain and dysfunction can be minimised by early assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of an acute shoulder injury.
