Shoulder Pain

Worried About Your Shoulder Pain?

Would it probably go away on its own if you ignored it long enough? NO!

The constant stiffness and pain that you’re feeling is having a negative impact on your life and probably preventing you from sleeping at night.

Do you think that resting your shoulder (easier said than done) will ease the symptoms?

Will avoiding painful activities magically make the pain go away? NO!

What will actually happen is that your shoulder will get worse and feel stiffer than when the pain started in the first place.

Shouder pain is an awful condition and one of the most difficult to deal with. It affects your normal movement, making it harder for you to do everyday activities. This has an enormous impact on your self-confidence. You can’t get yourself dressed easily, you can’t brush your teeth properly, driving is difficult, looking after children is nearly impossible. You can’t move your arms properly, so you become OVER cautious when living your life and eventually your shoulder becomes weaker and even stiffer.

Nobody should have to live with shoulder pain. Everybody that comes to see us wants to know….


There is so much diverse information about shoulder pain all over the internet. It’s why we’ve prepared a short report with everything in one place, where you can learn about the different conditions, such as Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff Tear, Bursitis and many more.

REST is great, but it isn’t always the answer.

We can help!

Sadly, most people who come to see us at Relive Physiotherapy Clinic in Chester for shoulder pain have had bad advice from somebody or just been confused by what they have found on the internet. I’m sure you are familiar with the scenario; ‘you should rest’, ‘just take some painkillers and you’ll feel better’, ‘wait and see how you feel.’ But days, weeks, months (and sometimes even years) pass and nothing changes - the shoulder pain is worse than it was before. The advice you were given wasn’t right, as painkillers only treat the pain, not the issue that you have. Rest rarely addresses the cause of the pain. You’ve followed the advice that you’ve had, but it hasn’t worked. You’ve been resting and taking the medication for a while, but you’re in no better shape than you were when the pain started.

Doing the right things helps you recover. If you don’t then you will need to get used to having shoulder pain as it will become a part of your daily routine. Getting ‘older’ doesn’t mean that you should accept that it is inevitable. The pain may have made you give up the activities that you love – playing sport, playing with the children/ grandchildren, painting or DIY, but it doesn't meant that they are lost forever.

Does That Sound Like YOU?

When you have constant shoulder pain, you don’t know what or who to believe about your pain. The information on the internet is often contradictory (and there is loads of it) and your family and friends often have pearls of wisdom to share about your injury. Unfortunately, unless they are medically trained and understand the complexity of your issue, their advice WON’T help. You don’t know what you should do, so you end up doing absolutely NOTHING and try to manage the pain. If you are suffering from a bad shoulder, then you probably think it was caused by a sudden movement, carrying something too heavy or even sleeping awkwardly. But the truth is often so different. It may have been caused by years of poor habits which have caused the shoulder muscles to get weaker and the pain that you are feeling is just the EFFECT of those poor habits.

If you keep your shoulder immobile for too long, after sitting on the sofa, for example, you will know that it feels a little stiff and sometimes even a little bit painful. Rest is great, but it’s not always the best thing for your shoulder pain. Too much rest can result in your shoulder becoming tighter, stiff and weak. You need to keep your shoulder active, do some targeted exercises which will help your condition and visit your friendly Relive Physiotherapist!

They will be able to demonstrate them, practice them with you to make sure you have the technique right and give you the right order to make sure that each exercise really counts.

If you get your exercises from the internet, then you are likely to be disappointed. Around 90% of people who use this source find exercise that are either inappropriate or not done correctly, which causes any pain and injuries to worsen. Not all shoulder injuries and pain are the same, so the exercises need to be chosen for YOU by a qualified professional.

Following all of the steps above will help you top start feeling better. But nothing beats the hands-on treatment that you will get at Relive Physiotherapy as standard.

If your shoulder injury or pain is preventing you from doing everyday tasks, work or do the things you love, then please call Relive Physiotherapy TODAY and your recovery can begin.
