Help For Shoulder Pain in Bendigo

Physiotherapy Centre Bendigo provides help for shoulder pain throughout Bendigo and the surrounding local communities.

Shoulder pain and problems that restrict movement are extremely common, and can be particularly debilitating for many individuals. Shoulder injuries can relate to the joint itself, muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Because the shoulder has a substantial degree of flexibility, it is often vulnerable to injury.

Diagnosing Shoulder Pain

Our physiotherapists will complete an assessment, which first gathers details of the history of the injury. Following this, a physical examination assessing posture, movement, strength, stability and function, will assist our physios in making a diagnosis. The close proximity of the neck mean the cervical spine and a neurological examination may be completed also.

Further investigations such as X-Rays, Ultra-Sound or MRI imaging may be recommended depending on the assessment findings or how the injury is responding to treatment and management.
