Suffering With Chronic Shoulder Pain?

Updated: Mar 27


SHOULDER PAIN AND INJURY IS A VERY COMMON COMPLAINT AND IN MANY CAN OFTEN BECOME CHRONIC. SHOULDER PAIN IS COMMON AMONG ATHLETES AND ACTIVE INDIVIDUALS, DUE TO THE SHOULDER JOINT BEING ESSENTIAL FOR MANY SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES.



Suffering With Chronic Shoulder Pain?


Here at Dynamic Osteopaths in Solihull and Birmingham we are seeing many different types of shoulder pain conditions ranging from early onset arthritis to activity related injury. Our aim is to preserve shoulder joint health and slow the progression of degenerative disease of joint and soft tissue, using a combination of conservative management and regenerative medicine.




SYMPTOMS OF SHOULDER PAIN

There are many different types of shoulder pain and causes. Some common symptoms of shoulder pain include:



- A dull ache

- A sharp or severe pain on movement

- Gradual or sudden discomfort

- Pain worse with overuse, or certain activities

- Night pain

- Reduced mobility/range of motion

- Muscle spasms

- Referred pain

- Altered sensation (Numbness/tingling)

- Weakness

- Instability




WHAT IS CAUSING YOUR SHOULDER PAIN?


Other than specific injury, there are many different causes and predisposing factors in relation to shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can be hugely disabling and can make performing daily tasks very difficult. Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain are:


- Sudden trauma

- Bursitis

- Acute or chronic rotator cuff tear

- Shoulder tendinitis

- Frozen shoulder

- Labral tear

- Biceps tendinitis

- Shoulder Impingement

- Instability

- Shoulder joint Arthritis

- AC joint injury

- Fractures





Here at Dynamic Osteopaths we specialise in shoulder pain and dysfunction, and it is our aim and priority to gain a full and accurate diagnosis. Because there are so many causes of shoulder pain, this is a crucial that this is done prior to treatment, as the shoulder diagnosis can largely influence the effectiveness of our treatment for the shoulder.


Here our osteopaths, who are Solihull and Birmingham shoulder specialists take the necessary steps to identify the correct diagnosis before ensuring a more effective shoulder treatment. In most case our physical assessment of the shoulder and closely related joints will give us a good idea of what is causing the pain but in some cases scans may be needed for diagnostic confirmation. At Dynamic Osteopaths, we committed to relieving your pain and healing your shoulder injury, at the same time as dealing with your predisposing factors. It is the objective to ensure you make a full return to your active lifestyle.


In common practice many doctors will focus on temporary pain-relief measures like cortisone injections or invasive surgery, but we believe in a more innovative way to naturally restore shoulder function at the same time as reducing pain. We know that our patients want long-lasting relief, not just a quick fix, and that’s exactly what we strive to deliver.


Dynamic Osteopaths are primarily focused on conservative treatment and minimally invasive alternative procedures that can potentially improve your symptoms and repair local tissue damage in your shoulder without the long healing and rehabilitation period. These treatments may include effective biological treatments like platelet rich plasma (PRP) shoulder injections and hyaluronic acid. We believe that these approaches offer an effective minimally invasive method for treating shoulder pain. High amounts of patients are now opting for these forms of treatments for the shoulder pain with ongoing positive results.
