Shoulder pain is very common and can affect a person both during activity and at rest.
There are many different shoulder pathologies but two main ones are Frozen Shoulder and Shoulder impingement.
Shoulder Impingement often involves structures such as Bursa and the Rotator Cuff Tendons and can affect anyone, at any time. QuickPhys uses Ultrasound scans to assist in diagnosis and when indicated to perform guided injections. The success of relieving symptoms after injection is significant. Review of injection therapy for shoulder impingement indicates an average decrease in pain experience by 78%.
Frozen Shoulder can affect anyone but has more association with diabetic patients aged between 40-65 years old. It often first presents as a very painful shoulder which gradually becomes more stiff and movement is restricted in all directions. Injection therapy can be of assistance in easing night time pain.
