Introduction to Neck & Shoulder pain
Neck and shoulder pain are common conditions that affect many people across the UK. This kind of pain can be related to work, sports or even day to day activity. At Infinite Physio, we understand the impact that shoulder and neck pain can have on your daily life and well-being. Our dedicated team of experienced physiotherapists is here to provide you with the personalized care and support you need to find relief and regain your mobility.
We believe that every individual is unique, and so is their experience of neck and shoulder pain. That’s why we take a comprehensive and individualized approach to address your specific needs. We work closely with you to understand the underlying issues and develop a tailored treatment plan.
Key Aspects of Our Care:
Advice and early activity: Early movement has been shown to be beneficial in improving neck and shoulder pain. However, we understand that pain can make you feel apprehensive about moving normally. Our experienced Physios will guide you in understanding your condition, teach you safe and comfortable movements, and provide support throughout your recovery journey.
Rehabilitation: Following a thorough assessment of your individual condition and its root causes, our Physio will design a personalized rehabilitation plan. This will take into account your current fitness levels, lifestyle, as well as your home, work, and hobbies to create a tailored plan. The rehabilitation plan may include exercises specifically designed to stretch or strengthen the structures around your neck and shoulder pain. You will receive this plan either in paper form or through our interactive and supportive app, Physitrack, whichever you prefer.
Manual therapy: Self manipulation or Physiotherapist guided manipulation of the area and the surrounding muscles and ligaments can be beneficial in many painful neck and shoulder conditions. Your Physio will discuss these with you and provide you with the appropriate instructions to carry out for optimal recovery.
Taping: Supportive kinesiology tape can be applied to your neck and shoulder to provide short-term relief. We can also teach this technique to you or a family member or friend so that they can assist you with it at home. Additionally, can provide a video for you to reference between visits to ensure the correct application.
Follow-up: Your care doesn’t end after the first appointment and care plan. We care about your progress and will schedule a follow-up appointment within a few weeks to check on your condition, address any concerns, and advance your rehabilitation plan. Our method of supportive, ongoing management has shown to yield the best results, and that’s what we aim for you.
At Infinite Physio, we are committed to providing you with personalized care and effective solutions to manage and alleviate your neck and shoulder pain. Our team of skilled professionals is here to support you throughout your journey to better health.
If you are diagnosed with tendon, muscle or joint pain you can benefit from Extracorporeal Shockwave treatment (ESWT).
Extracorporeal (outside of the body) Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive technique designed to treat the causes of chronic pain, without the need for invasive treatment such as injections or surgery. It involves delivering a series of high-energy impulses to the affected area.
A probe is passed over the site of your pain and shockwaves are directed to the area. Treatment with Shockwave produces an inflammatory response around the site of pain. The body responds to this by increasing metabolic activity. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process. Shockwave blocks transmission of pain signals which reduces overall pain levels within the area.
