Physiotherapy Introduction

Physiotherapy is highly successful in treating many shoulder conditions, improving pain and function levels, and avoiding surgery in many cases.

Physiotherapy helps people suffering with upper limb conditions and post injury through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. It is an evidence and science based profession, which puts the patient at the core through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

It is also imperative in post-operative care to help restore movement, strength and function,
