Shoulder Pain

Good shoulder function is essential for many popular sports.

Our expert physiotherapists are here to help you feel stronger, better, faster.

The shoulder joint is a unique design. It consists of a shallow ball and socket formation between the humerus (ball) and the scapula (socket). This structure provides incredible mobility; however, this also means that the stability can be compromised, as it is frequently injured in sporting and occupational activities. The shoulder joint relies on its static constraints (the glenohumeral ligaments, glenoid labrum and capsule) and dynamic stabilisers (the rotator cuff muscles) to provide additional stability beyond the bony structure.

Don’t let joint or muscle pain hold you back.

We’ll help assess the cause of your pain.
