Arm pain can happen suddenly or slowly over time. It can then impact heavily on our day to day function and quality of life, interfering with sport, exercise, work and daily activities. The exact cause, type and location of the pain is always unique to each individual, which means there is no single ‘fix’ for all arm pain.  Given that the exact cause of your pain can be quite complicated, it is important that a thorough assessment is undertaken by your physiotherapist to ensure any underlying issues are addressed. This enables a solution to be found that works for you, provides long term relief and stops the issue from re-occurring.

Physiotherapy can help you with your arm pain through education, hands on techniques and personalised, targeted exercise programs. As experts in functional movement we assess, diagnose and treat movement related disorders and help you to recover from injury. Pain should not have to limit you from participating in what you enjoy. When you seek treatment at myPhysioSA we will develop an individualised treatment program for you, guided by your personal goals and with an understanding of the specific demands of your daily activities. This will help you to learn how to stay healthy and manage the long term physical demands on your body, while personalised goals and a tailored plan helps to aid in a successful recovery.

If you currently have no plan in place for improving your pain and getting back to what you want to do again, then now is the time! Book an appointment at our Adelaide or Mount Barker clinics now and one of our qualified, experienced physiotherapists will help you get back on the path to feeling great again.
