Determining the cause of the injury and whether it is acute or overload is important to help guide your management and assessment.
Management of the acute shoulder aims to reduce the load on the shoulder, reduce pain and restore movement as able. Rehabilitation will depend on your injury. It will likely include strengthening the muscles around your shoulder and shoulder blade, exercises to improve your range of movement, proprioception exercises as well as hands on therapy from your physiotherapist.
Management of the overuse/postural shoulder injury will aim to reduce pain and then address the acute of your overload. This may include education regarding your work station set up, appropriate posture and exercise techniques. A rehabilitation program will address the areas which need to be strengthened or moving more freely. Programs are individualised to address your personal needs.
