THE SHOULDER CLINIC
Do you have shoulder pain? Does your shoulder feel unstable? Do you have reduced movement? Have you had shoulder surgery?
At Mill Park Physiotherapy, we have a special interest in treating shoulder conditions.
Shoulder pathology is complex and can present with variable symptom most commonly, pain and reduced function. From the elite athlete, to your everyday warrior and the elderly, shoulder pathology and can have significant impact on a persons ability to function in daily activities. Shoulder injuries are difficult to treat and are often misdiagnosed. This results in prolonged rehabilitation times with residual pain and dysfunction.
Tania, Nicole and Amelia all have post-graduate training in the treatment and management of shoulder injuries. All are actively involved in shoulder research at La Trobe University and together, have published numerous research papers and presented at national and international conferences on physiotherapy management of the shoulder. With accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment interventions in combination with a home-based rehabilitation exercise program, optimal outcomes can be achieved.
The Shoulder Clinic at Mill Park, has a strong emphasis on tailoring an individuals functional goals into rehabilitation, whether it be sport-specific drills or activities of daily living (dressing, hanging washing on the line).
