Find Long Term Relief with Shoulder Pain Therapy

Is your shoulder pain causing you to hold your breath when you reach up to high cupboards, when you wash your hair or put your coat on?

 

If you’ve got persistent shoulder pain that doesn’t seem to be going away even with medications, it’s easy to think that pain is just an inevitable part of aging.

 

All you can think is: “why is this lasting so long?” and “how long will it take before it gets better?”

We understand how frustrating this can be, affecting your mood, energy and the way you’re moving in your everyday life.

 

We also understand that you’re not alone. As shoulder pain specialists, we hear this type of problem every day at From the Ground Up Physiothérapie.

Everyone is unique and has their own story…we have helped treat all kinds of shoulder pain symptoms:

  • Muscle aches

  • Pain deep in the shoulder joint, in the back or the front of the shoulder and the upper part of the arm

  • Reduced movement, and pain when moving your shoulder

  • Weakness of the shoulder/upper arm

  • Pain that worsens with reaching up, lifting, reaching out, carrying

  • Shooting or stabbing pain

  • Pain that radiates up your arm

Treat the Cause not the Symptoms:
Why our shoulder pain therapy differs from Conventional Approaches

 

How many times have you released the same tight spot with a tennis ball, specific stretch or foam roller? Have you ever wondered why the same spots repeatedly become tight or painful? Or, if you have sought treatment for chronic pain or an injury, how often do practitioners go straight to the site of pain? Or you feel better for a few days after the treatment and then the pain returns?

 

This is because these short-term relief aids only focus on the symptoms and site of pain. The site of pain is often simply the physical evidence that the body is compensating for something and is therefore no longer balanced.

 

Instead, we need to ask what is making your shoulder overwork in the first place?

At From the Ground Up Physiotherapy, we use a comprehensive and progressive shoulder physiotherapy approach that listens to the clues in your story, finds the true cause of your problem, eases your pain and focuses on building your resilience so the problem does not re-occur.

 

At the heart of our approach, we strive to understand your story and design a movement plan that will be of true value to you in your everyday life according to your goals, rather than just popping you on a machine and handing you generic exercises.

 

At the initial assessment, we start by:

  • Reviewing your previous injuries, surgeries, scars, and trouble spots as we put together a complete history of your physical condition.

  • Conducting a digital foot and center of mass analysis using the latest technology to give us a detailed picture of what is going on with your musculoskeletal system.

  • Making sense of your movement habits using our objective assessment so we can get straight to the root cause. 

  • Explaining to you clearly with no big fancy words your problem

  • Designing a stepwise plan for complete clarity on what you need to do and how to get back to what’s most important for you.

For your shoulder pain treatment, we use a combination of effective hands on physiotherapy to ease your shoulder pain quickly while delivering a tailored movement plan that addresses your specific limitations.

 

By taking you through a step by step plan to progressively increase the load on your body, we can ensure that you return to the activities you love doing with thoughtless, fearless movement.
