Did you know that we gain 50-80% of our shoulder power from our leg muscles? Research has shown that the vast majority of non-traumatic (when there was no known injury) shoulder pain is a result of rotator cuff dysfunction. The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles that act like a cuff to support the ball in socket joint of the shoulder and ensures it moves in the correct way. What research and experience has shown us is that the rotator cuff starts to have a problem when the rest of the body is not supporting it well enough.
Here at Pure Physiotherapy our specialist physiotherapists can help devise an exercise programme that ensures that you strengthen the shoulder alongside the rest of the body to reduce the strain on the rotator cuff and shoulder so as to reduce your pain right now and to prevent recurrence of pain in the future. We expect to be able to reduce the pain that you feel on movement by helping you activate the right muscles to support your own shoulder.
So if you have had a niggly shoulder that never seems to have completely settled, or if you are looking at orthopaedic intervention for an ongoing problem, then why not book an assessment with us and see if we can help you change your pain.
