What is shoulder stabilisation and rehabilitation?

The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the body and can be subject to a whole range of debilitating conditions. But, most people don’t really think too much about their shoulders, until they start becoming uncomfortable, painful or they suffer an injury.

But when you think how often you use your shoulders in every-day life, it becomes evident how important it really is to look after them. Looking after your shoulders will ensure you’re able to carry out basic day to day activities – such as brushing your teeth and washing the dishes – as well as keeping them in top shape for the sporting field.

Shoulder rehabilitation is usually required after a shoulder injury, or shoulder surgery. This helps to make sure you maximise your chances of a full recovery.
Shoulder rehab usually involves a well-structured exercise program to ensure that your shoulders regain conditioning, mobility and strength to get you back to your best possible physical shape.

What are common causes of shoulder pain and injury?

Given that we use our shoulders for so many different activities in day-to-day life, plus rigorously on the sporting field, there’s several ways that shoulder pain and injury can occur.

Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain we see at Trained Physio Perth include:

  • Upper back and neck tightness
  • Tendon inflammation / tear
  • Arthritis
  • Long-term strain from sporting activities
  • Overloading of the joint by heavy lifting or repetitive movements
  • Poor posture
  • Wear and tear with age
  • Sporting injuries or physical accidents causing fracture

Rotator Cuff Injuries

Rotator cuff injuries are one of the more common shoulder problems we see here at Trained Physio and Fitness.

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons in your shoulder, which form a ‘cuff’ around the top of the upper arm bone. These muscles and tendons help the shoulder move.

Rotator cuff injuries often occur as a result of repeated use and wearing down of the tendons or muscles in the shoulder (sometimes even tears). This wearing down of the muscles and tendons usually results in patients experiencing a dull ache or tenderness in the shoulder, numbness and tingling in the affected and weakness of the shoulder.

As you might expect, shoulder pain and shoulder injuries can become extremely problematic in our general everyday lives, and even worse when it comes to being in top shape for sporting events.

That’s why it’s always very important that if you experience a shoulder injury, or shoulder pain, that you see a qualified professional physiotherapist so your shoulder pain or discomfort can be assessed and treated correctly.

Undergoing a comprehensive rehabilitation program will assist you in getting back to your best and help you gain maximum flexibility and mobility to carry out the tasks you need, along with releasing the pain and discomfort you may be feeling.

What are the symptoms of a shoulder injury?

While some symptoms of shoulder injury may be obvious – such as physical injures from accidents or sports, there are also a number of other less obvious signs that where you should seek treatment.

Some common symptoms of a shoulder injury include:

  • General discomfort, dull ache or pain in the shoulder
  • Pain when resting, or at night time, especially if lying on the affected shoulder
  • Pain when lifting and lowering arms
  • Weakness when lifting arms

You may not experience all these symptoms, but if you have shoulder discomfort or pain it’s important that you see a professional physiotherapist.

When should I seek treatment for a shoulder injury?

If you think you have a shoulder injury, it’s important that you get onto it early to prevent any further damage or discomfort.

A qualified physiotherapist can assess your shoulder to determine what treatment is necessary for a more successful rehabilitation.

When should I start shoulder rehabilitation?

You should seek an appointment with your physiotherapist as soon as possible to address your rehabilitation. Depending on the severity of your shoulder injury, your physiotherapist may start rehabilitation exercises with you immediately, or they may refer you to a sports doctor or orthopaedic surgeon for further investigation.

  • Severity of injury
  • Age of patient
  • Activity level of patient
  • Physical condition of patient
  • Desired outcome of patient.

Most patients begin to feel significantly better within the first few weeks where they feel a reduction in both pain and swelling.

The time taken to return to sport after suffering an ACL injury for most people is usually around 9-12 months, however some cases can be shorter, around the 6-9 month period.

How long does shoulder rehabilitation take?

Recovery and rehabilitation time depends on a number of factors, and varies between each individual patient, along with the severity of their injury.
Factors that influence recovery time include:

  • Severity of injury
  • Age of patient
  • Activity level of patient
  • Physical condition of patient
  • Desired outcome of patient

Most patients we see at Trained Physio and Fitness begin to feel significantly better within the first couple of weeks where they feel a reduction in both pain and discomfort, and start to regain strength and flexibility in the shoulder.
