Shoulder Injuries

The shoulder joint is the most movable joint in the body. It is comprised of the collarbone, the shoulder blade, and the upper arm bone.  Shoulders are prone to injury because they are by nature unstable since the ball of the upper arm is larger than the socket that holds it. Hence it is the site of many common problems such as sprains, strains, dislocations, rotator cuff tears, and frozen shoulder.

If you have shoulder pain or suffer an injury to your shoulder, seek the advice of Arbutus Physiotherapy early to determine the exact nature of your problem. Early treatment and following the tips can result in patients having a faster and better recovery. Some shoulder problems require surgery, and professional guidance is essential during your recovery. Arbutus Physiotherapy can help you avoid common complications after surgery, restore your strength and flexibility and get you back to your activities as quickly as possible.
