Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is an extremely mobile and complex joint, allowing us to achieve a large range of tasks because of this property. But when the shoulder loses its ability to keep the ball centered precisely in the socket at any given point in our movement, pain can quickly ensue, limiting your ability to accomplish once simple tasks.

Some common shoulder symptoms include:

  • A stiff shoulder with or without pain
  • Discomfort with your sleeping
  • Pain with reaching and lifting and most simple tasks
  • Pain at the extremes of your range of movement
  • Aching post activity

Running Repairs

Running is second only to walking as the choice of recreational pursuit with an estimated 10-15% of the Australian population aged 15 years and over engaged in regular running. Chances are, most runners have had niggles or pain during their runs but when does that niggle/pain warrant attention?

  • Is that sore knee becoming more regular or increasingly noticeable?
  • Is your post-run soreness lingering longer that it usually does?
  • Is foot pain now the predominant feature of your once joyous running experience?
  • Sore hips making you think twice about your next run?

Now it warrants attention……!

The old adage of simply ‘pushing through’ ongoing discomfort is rarely best and could lead to more serious injury and prolonged time away from running if not properly addressed.

At Inform Physio Care, we employ a comprehensive running evaluation that:

  • Outlines important factors as to why your symptoms are present through a series of specific questions – training schedules, load, past injuries
  • Highlights key areas of concern via digital video analysis of your running gait (pattern)
  • Analyses flexibility, muscle strength and balance/control through a run-specific musculoskeletal screen

Using your evaluation results, we marry a targeted strength/flexibility program with specific manual therapy techniques to reduce your symptoms, allowing a faster return to your running pursuits whilst instilling preventative measures to keep you at your best.
