Shoulder Pain Treatment At Larch Tree Osteopathic Practice, Coventry
Shoulder pain has become more common in recent years, which may be related to the increase in computer and Smartphone usage and sedentary lifestyles.
Shoulder pain can be very complex and as a consequence can take a long time to resolve. Your osteopath will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and decide on a course of treatment.
What causes shoulder pain?
- Shoulder pain can result from a number of problems including:
- Rotator cuff tears/strains
- Shoulder impingement – when shoulder tendons are trapped and compressed during shoulder movements
- Frozen shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis) – when the shoulder capsule swells and stiffens, restricting mobility
- Postural tension
- Referred pain
How can osteopathy help?
Osteopaths will use a variety of techniques to improve muscular flexibility in the shoulder area, improve the range of joint movement in the mid back, neck, shoulder blade and shoulder. Osteopaths will also address any postural strains, bad habits and provide advice on maintaining flexibility and strength around the shoulder region.
