Shoulder pain is the third most common reason why people see their GP for a musculoskeletal problem, after lower back pain and neck pain. Whilst the majority of shoulder pain is largely self-limiting, it is not uncommon for some discomfort to persist beyond 12-months – the evidence-based resources in this section aim to help you on your journey to recovery.
Shoulder pain is a common complaint of patients when visiting their GP.
Reasons for shoulder pain can include rotator cuff injuries, acromioclavicular joint pain, ‘frozen’ shoulders, repetitive strain injuries and osteoarthritis.
Shoulder pain can last for several years If not treated appropriately. OsteoVision can help with individualised treatment options to help relieve pain and stiffness.
OsteoVision works closely with a team of highly respected and specialised muscular skeletal (MSK) experts, which include pain specialists, orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, medicines review specialists, specialist MSK physiotherapists, acupuncturists, cognitive behavioural specialists as well as occupational health specialists who provide complete care across the range of MSK conditions and complexity / severity of disease. The orthopaedic surgeons and pain specialists we work with only perform interventions and surgical procedures once they are confident that all appropriate osteopathy and physiotherapy interventions have been optimised. Generally, patients benefit from physiotherapy or osteopathy after surgery to optimally mobilise the joint and strengthen their muscles.
