Shoulder pain treatment

Shoulder pain is a common, easily treatable complaint that we see regularly at our Leeds and Manchester clinics. Whatever the cause of your injury, our practitioners are on hand to provide shoulder pain or frozen shoulder treatment.

What is shoulder pain?

There are a number of different causes of shoulder pain, some which can result in sudden, intense pain and some can cause long-lasting, or chronic pain which persists over a number of years.

Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain are linked to an impingement of the rotator cuff tendon, a torn rotator cuff, and/or adhesive capsulitis, also known as frozen shoulder. In the case of ‘frozen shoulder’ a protective mechanism of the body causes the shoulder to freeze up and become immobile.

Symptoms of shoulder pain include:

  1. Discomfort in the side of the shoulder joint and top of the arm
  2. Pain when sleeping on the affected side
  3. Pain during everyday tasks such as brushing hair or reaching into back pockets

Causes of shoulder pain:

  1. Stress or injury of the rotator cuff muscles
  2. Tear in the rotator cuff tendon

Treating shoulder pain

Treating shoulder pain will depend on your particular symptoms. A full assessment will always be carried out before we start treatment. During your assessment you’ll be asked about your medical history and the details of your current injury.

Shoulder pain relief or frozen shoulder relief can be achieved with range of manual therapies including osteopathy, chiropractic, physiotherapy or massage. Our practitioners will use hands-on methods including joint mobilisation, deep tissue massage, soft tissue stretching and deep tissue release to treat your pain. They may also provide advice on posture, lifestyle, workstation set-up and exercise to help prevent further or recurring injury.

If the problem is severe, our practitioners may refer you to a consultant for further investigation.

Osteopathic Patients

After suffering with neck & shoulder problems, my husband and I had Freedom osteopathic treatment. After only a few sessions we noticed a marked improvement. We both have maintenance sessions once a month to keep symptoms at a minimum.
