Shoulder & Elbow Pain Melbourne
Shoulder pain melbourne, look no further!
Myotherapists provide treatment solutions for shoulder and elbow conditions such as rotator cuff pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, repetitive strain injury and a number of other shoulder and elbow conditions.
The reason a lot of therapists including physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and even myotherapists sometimes don't fix the shoulder pain/dysfunction is because the shoulder is a complex joint and it involves more muscles than any other joint in the body.
This means we need to treat the correct muscles around the shoulder to see change and prescribe the right exercises at the right time to strengthen the weaknesses in the shoulder to see change!
Due to the shoulders always being used in daily activities this can cause the shoulder joint to become at risk to injury because it is able to move through such wide range of motions.
A Myotherapist can assess and treat shoulder related injuries and provide the most effective shoulder treatment.
Myotherapists can certainly help you with your shoulder pain melbourne.
How Myotherapy can help?
The goal of a Myotherapist is to reduce pain and improve mobility and function of the surrounding muscles and joints, ligaments and tendons.
Myotherapy aims to decrease shoulder pain, improve range of motion, improve scapular-humeral rhythm, strengthen stabilizers and rotator cuff muscles and improve posture.
Manual Therapy – Soft tissue and deep tissue techniques to release rotator cuff and shoulder musculature
Dry needling – to release trigger points which are causing pain and dysfunction
Electrotherapy (TENS) – A TENS machine passes electricity across the skin to stimulate the nerves and relieve pain
Strengthening exercises – prescription of shoulder strengthening exercises to gain greater mobility and stability in the shoulder and assist in long term pain prevention.
Stretching exercises – Stretches can be great for short term relief and to allow the joint to move better through its full range.
