Shoulder Pain

Worried About Your Sports Injury?

Resting it should be enough? NO!

It will probably go away by itself if I ignore it. WRONG!

This has an enormous negative effect on your mental wellbeing and self-confidence as you try to avoid doing simple daily activities.

By doing nothing, you are affecting your quality of life. By doing nothing, your injury is not getting better. In fact, it might be getting worse, especially if you are still training or playing. Your body is having to compensate for your injury and this is now putting extra strain on other parts of your body.

Your injury is probably getting worse and feeling stiffer than when the pain started in the first place. A Sports Injury is not always straightforward. It could become a difficult condition to deal with depending on the sport you play. One minute, you’re at the top of your game and making improvements, the next you’re unable to do the sport that you were playing. Generally, it spills over into your everyday non-sporting life and makes it harder for you to do your normal everyday activities. This has an enormous negative effect on your mental wellbeing and self-confidence as try to avoid simple daily activities. Depending on your injury, it may be difficult to walk, drive, get dressed, brush your teeth, or even get out of a chair. If you have children to look after, your injury makes this a real challenge. You become OVER cautious when living your life and eventually your injury gets worse, and the area becomes weaker and even stiffer.

People who get injured doing sport often ask us:


To help you navigate information about Sports Injuries, we’ve prepared a short report where you can learn about the different conditions and how to prevent them, such as Torn muscle, twisted ankle and many more.

REST is a vital part of recovery, but it isn’t the full story.

We can help!

There is so much information out there on the internet about the different sports injuries you can get and even more advice about what you should do. Sadly, a lot of this is conflicting which leaves you feeling confused and looking for proper answers. This is the situation in which many of the Clients who come to the Relive Physiotherapy Clinic in Chester with a sports injury find themselves.

If they are part of a club or group, they’ve often been told ‘It’s probably nothing, so it’ll go with a bit of rest’, ‘if it still hurts in a day or two, just get some painkillers while it heals’ or ‘see how you feel in a few days’. All of this advice is well-meant, but after days, weeks, months (and sometimes even years), the problems are still there, NOTHING has changed, and the condition may have even worsened. The painkillers took away the pain but didn’t heal the injury. Once they are finished, the pain comes back. Rest can help, but it won’t address the cause of the pain.

After taking pain medication and resting, absolutely nothing has changed. The injury is still there. And they are unable to take part in their sport, so they will miss the race, match, or competition.

The most important thing to do when you have a sports injury is the right thing. Who can tell you this? A trained professional who can assess the extent of your injury and design a bespoke plan to get you on the road to recovery. If you are in pain, it will start to intrude into your daily life, stopping you from doing things such as working, looking after children/ grandchildren or even simple daily tasks. ‘Getting older’ does not mean bowing to the inevitable and just living with your pain.

Does That Sound Like YOU?

When you injure yourself doing sport, you feel frustrated, a little angry with yourself and often don’t know where to find the right information about your injury or who to believe about the pain. When you search your symptoms on the internet, it will tell you either it’s nothing and you can go back to training or it’s the end of your career. Hang up your boots/ shoes/ racquet/ club now, you’re finished. The problem is you don’t know what to believe. Well-meaning friends/ family and colleagues will tell you all sorts of things about your injury and what you should do. With the best will in the world, unless they are medically trained and have examined your injury thoroughly, they can’t advise you properly. You have information overload and end up doing NOTHING. And nothing happens. Absolutely nothing. You try to manage the pain as best you can, but your injury doesn’t improve. Your injury may not be the effect of the actual contact or shot that you attempted, but rather the effect of a poor warm up/ cool down regime over time and the injury is just the EFFECT of this.

Is This Happening To You Too?

This is all too common. You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. There is help that you can get. When people come to Relive Physiotherapy, the best clinic for Sports Injuries in Chester, they all feel a little embarrassed about their injury. They often tell us:

  • lineI thought the pain would go away by itself, but it DIDN’T
  • lineI’ve been told that everyone my AGE gets this and I’ll just have to ‘Put Up With It’
  • lineI went to see my GP – they gave me painkillers and told me to rest. It felt better for a while, but as soon as I stop taking the medication, my pain was back
  • lineI found some exercises on the internet, but they didn’t help, only made it worse
  • lineI went to see a massage therapist. It was nice and pleasant at first, but it didn’t fix my pain long term
  • lineI’ve been to see all manner of people and tried what they recommended but nothing they said or did seemed to help

What 4 Things Can I Do Now To Get Rid Of My Pain?

Make a decision. TODAY. It’s the first step to getting on the road to recovery. Making that very important decision will improve your physical and mental wellbeing and you will feel a weight has been taken off your shoulders. Say goodbye to your pain, you’re back in control.

Resting is good for an injury, but there is such a thing as too much rest. Too much rest will cause your injury to get stiffer, sorer and it may even increase the pain. Doing some simple targeted exercises will help your injury if done correctly. These should be prescribed by a professional and where better to find one of those than at Relive Physiotherapy?

Exercises are so important. Your friendly Physiotherapist will be able to give you the right ones for you to do in the right order and at the right time. They will demonstrate how to do them, and then make sure that you are doing them properly with the proper technique to improve your recovery.

If you get your exercises from the internet, then you are likely to be disappointed. Around 90% of people who find their exercises on the internet do the wrong exercises or don’t do them properly and this actually does more harm than good. Not all sports injuries are the same, so the exercises for your specific injury should be given to you by a qualified professional.

If you follow the steps, then you will start to feel better. However, nothing can beat the effects of ‘hands-on’ Physiotherapy that you get from Relive Physiotherapy as standard for your Sports Injury. There has been a trend recently to consult remotely, or to prescribe exercises alone, but we feel that this does not give you the best chance of a full recovery. We believe that you DESERVE the best and this is often the quickest route to recovery. It gives lasting results which is vital for any Sports injury. If your 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.

Just a small word about expectations. A professional sportsperson would probably be treated by Physiotherapy every day to hasten their recovery. Every injury requires a certain number of sessions, and you should follow the recommendations of your Physiotherapist to ensure you receive the full benefit.
