Shoulder Pain

What to expect


We will initially conduct a subjective examination which involved lots of questions regarding your pain. These include:

  • The area of your back pain

  • The areas that your pain refers to

  • Whether you have any pins and needles or numbness

  • What aggravates and relieves your pain

  • How your pain changes through the day

  • What activities you can’t do because of your back

  • The history of this and other episodes of low back pain

  • What investigations you might have had already

  • What previous treatment you might have tried



On the physical examination


We will look at and assess:

  • Posture

  • Active back movement

  • Palpation of your back

  • Straight leg raise

  • Muscle strength

  • Sensation assessment


Treatment may involve a combination of:

  • Information and advice

  • Postural correction

  • Manual therapy

  • Exercise therapy

  • Tape

  • Ergonomic advice

  • Further referral to other practitioners if required

  • Acupuncture if required

You will be given a home program of exercises to continue on your own.
