Specialty: Shoulder Pain Treatment in Bondi Junction
Shoulder pain is one of the most common ailments across the community. However, with optimal management and tailored care, it is also one of the most treatable conditions.
One of the most complex joints in the human body, the shoulder joint is considered to be a ‘ball and socket’ that includes the humerus (arm bone), the scapula (shoulder blade) and the clavicle (collar bone). There are many ligamentous and muscular structures surrounding the joint that contribute to its stability and mobility. Being a highly mobile joint that allows movement in multiple directions, it is one of the most important joints that is used on a day to day basis, which therefore requires adequate care.
If you are currently suffering from shoulder pain, then the team at ISO Physiotherapy in Bondi Junction are here to support you.
The process begins with a thorough assessment, which involves a look into your history, followed by a physical examination of the shoulder as well as the surrounding joints that may be a contributing factor. History taking will allow us to gain an understanding of the nature and extent of the condition, as well as what may be causing your symptoms. We will then assess your shoulder, and take a look at your range of motion and strength. We do this through specific baseline measurements, so we can evaluate your progression throughout your rehabilitation journey. We may also undertake specific shoulder testing so that we can further investigate the exact cause of your symptoms.
Once we have planned your pathway to rehabilitation, then treatment can begin. This can include a range of modalities that will focus on controlling and managing your symptoms initially, as well as regaining impairments such as shoulder mobility or strength deficits, which will assist in the management of the condition. Specific exercises will also be prescribed to assist with the rehabilitation, and will be advanced as the patient progresses through their recovery.
Reasons for Physiotherapy
Pain Management: We know that pain can be frustrating, but here at ISO Physiotherapy in Bondi Junction we are committed to the journey of managing your pain to the best of our ability. We understand that pain is a complex topic that comes in many forms, however we specialise in treating and managing each individual’s experience of pain whether it comes from an acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) situation.
Acute pain from the onset of a specific trauma or incident that has occurred can have not only a short term effect on your health but also a long term impact if not managed in a timely manner. After appropriately diagnosing the injury or condition through an in-depth assessment, our treatment will focus on controlling your symptoms in the early phases whilst allowing adequate healing time. A focus on regaining optimal movement and strength is followed where there is an emphasis on slowly building your tolerance to specific movements. Alongside hands-on treatment known as ‘Manual Therapy’, we will establish a tailored and individualised exercise program, so that your road to recovery is unique to your personal needs.
Chronic pain can be a draining and frustrating condition, especially if the cause is unclear. At ISO Physiotherapy in Bondi Junction, we are here to not only diagnose your condition so that an appropriate treatment plan can be formulated, but to provide you with appropriate evidence-based techniques and therapeutic exercises. This will aid in managing your pain, so optimal function can be restored and you are able to continue doing the things you love. We also commit to practical and emotional support, so you feel comfortable and well informed throughout and beyond your engagement with us at the clinic.
