The shoulder is a complex joint with many structures within and around the area. With numerous ligaments, tendons and bony landmarks within the region, the shoulder can be an easy target for dysfunction and pain. Rotator cuff injuries, tendinopathies, labral tears, frozen shoulders and capsulitis’ are a few of the most common issues found at the glenohumeral junction.
Symptoms of shoulder dysfunction can vary from person to person and depends on which tissue is responsible. Common symptoms include: limited to no shoulder range of motion, local pain characterized as a dull constant ache that may be sharp on movement, muscle stiffness, muscle soreness and/or excessive clicking.
Through a thorough initial consultation and orthopedic testing by our Caloundra Chiropractors, we are able to determine the tissue in the lesion and treat accordingly to your needs and goals.
