Shoulder pain and injury can be caused by wear and tear from work or repetitive movements; injury from a fall or accident; it can be sports related, or caused by a medical condition. Unfortunately, you are more likely to suffer from shoulder problems as you grow older as the soft tissues surrounding the shoulder tend to degenerate with age.
If not correctly diagnosed, shoulder injuries can lead to chronic pain and restricted movement, impairing your ability to perform everyday tasks.
Orthotic House can help by providing a correct diagnosis of the cause of your problem, a structured treatment plan, and ongoing support to reduce your pain and increase movement and mobility.
Consultation will consider your level of pain and movement range, your age, size, any relevant medical conditions, lifestyle, activity requirements, and your desired outcome.
To provide a complete diagnosis, we conduct a physical exam testing the range of motion, pain levels and physical appearance of the skin.
To complete the diagnosis, if required, we may refer you to a specialist.
