Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle).
The head of your upper arm bone fits into a rounded socket in your shoulder blade. This socket is called the glenoid. A combination of muscles and tendons keeps your arm bone centered in your shoulder socket. These tissues are called the rotator cuff. They cover the head of your upper arm bone and attach it to your shoulder blade. The muscles and tendons in the shoulder can develop shoulder pain that requires treatment and physical therapy to relieve you of pain and restore your range of motion.
Shoulder pain itself is categorized as inflammation (a reaction to an injury), damage to the muscles or tendons, tension around the neck and shoulder, or damage to the bones and cartilage. This pain can come either directly from the shoulder or indirectly from the neck. If you do experience shoulder pain, it’s not always possible to determine the exact cause. Sometimes problems in other parts of the body are actually the source of the pain, which then radiates to your shoulder.
Strengthening your arm, neck and shoulder muscles, and using good body mechanics are great ways to ensure your shoulder stays strong. But if you do develop a shoulder problem, a visit to BPC at our shoulder center in Bangkok for shoulder pain treatment and physiotherapy will allow you to recover quickly and completely.
BPC’s 4 step process was established by our team of expert physiotherapists to best guide you through a successful recovery while empowering patients to take charge of their health through our personalized exercise program.
The first step in recovering is to take away instant pain. We will use our state of the art machines including ultra sound, laser and shockwave machines to take away your discomfort and pain that your muscles are experiencing. This will then allow your body the ability to relax, to be able to get back to its full function.
Using manual therapy, our therapists will use their ‘hands on’ clinical massage to loosen and improve the mobility of the joints, soft tissues and nerves. This will unbind your tense muscles and eventually provide the mobility leading to increased range of motion.
Once your muscles are loosened, our therapists will work on increasing your range of motion which will allow the no longer painful joint or muscle to extend closer to its full range. Doing this with our therapists involves moving in the correct direction, speed and technique to prevent any further complications. While you get stronger, it will lead to our recovery phase of exercising.
To complete the process, we will work on the correct form technique, and exercises with you to make sure that your pains and complications do not return, so that you can live a healthier and happier life, physically and mentally, spending more time with your loved ones.
Whether you’re sick or in good health,
we have the best place to assist you.
