Shoulder Tendinopathy/Tendonitis – Shoulder tendinopathies are often the result of poor biomechanics of the shoulder during movement, repeated over time. This causes the tendons to be loaded sub-optimally, resulting in pain and inflammation. Tendinopathies often present as pain when first starting activity, then easing off as the shoulder warms up, followed by pain a few hours after activity once the area has cooled back down. There are various stages of tendinopathies, each with varying treatment strategies used to rehabilitate.
To treat effectively, you need to be assessed by an expert Physiotherapist to ascertain which stage of tendon injury you are in and move forward to commence your rehab plan.
After assessing you, our sports physiotherapists will discuss the most appropriate treatment. A treatment plan may include nutritional advice, injury prevention strategies, manual therapy and exercise programs.
