Physiotherapy for Shoulder Pain and Injury

If you are suffering from shoulder pain physiotherapy can help. Physiotherapy will in many cases help you fully rehabilitate and get back to your physical best. In some cases physiotherapy may not be able to ‘fix’ your shoulder pain or injury, but rather it can assist you in maximising the function of your shoulder and reduce your pain. An example of this might be an osteoarthritic shoulder.
