Get Shoulder Pain Treatment and Physiotherapy in Bangkok

Everyone has had shoulder pain at least once in their life. Generally, it’s just a result of overuse, and the pain subsides within a day or two. But for shoulder pain that requires treatment and physiotherapy in Bangkok, you want to find a place with qualified people performing the treatments. 

You’ll want to make an appointment at the Bangkok Physiotherapy Center (BPC). Recurring or constant shoulder pain should be treated only by a doctor or licensed physiotherapists. The physiotherapists at BPC have a special 4-step process that offers successful recovery from serious shoulder pain that inhibits your ability to work or perform the usual movements that are a part of a normal lifestyle.

Diagnosing Your Shoulder Problem

Shoulder pain can be caused by a range of issues including, contact sports, repetitive motions due to your occupation, heavy lifting, age, and sudden yanks or tugs. A combination of these issues can also cause the pain. 

The shoulder is made up of three bones, the upper arm bone (humerus), the shoulder blade (scapula), and the collarbone (clavicle). The top of the humerus has a rounded area that fits into a socket in the scapula called the glenoid. The glenoid is a regular source of shoulder pain because of the movement and stress it endures. 

A combination of muscles and tendons are connected to the three bones, and any of these can also be the source of your shoulder pain.

The specialists at BPC will examine your shoulder and determine if you have a serious injury such as a rotator cuff tear, separated shoulder, shoulder labrum tear, dislocated shoulder or fractured one of the bones in your shoulder. 

They’ll also diagnose a frozen shoulder, which is when the tissue around the shoulder gets inflamed and causes pain, stiffness and reduced freedom of movement. This condition typically can last for 3-4 months and demands an ongoing physiotherapy program. 

4-step Recovery Process

The recovery process of BPC entails 4-steps designed to offer complete recovery from shoulder pain caused by a number of conditions. Even after a serious injury has healed sufficiently to allow movement, physiotherapy may be needed to restore full movement to the area and allow you to resume your normal lifestyle or job. 

The first step is to remove any pain that prohibits you from progressing in your recovery. The therapists at BPC use a combination of ultrasound, lasers, and shockwave machines to rid your body of debilitating shoulder pain and allow you to start slowly moving the affected area.

The next step is to relax the muscles using manual therapy and clinical massage. This will help increase your range of motion in the affected area. 

The third step after relaxing the muscles is to gradually increase the range of motion. Doing this as part of a monitored program of physiotherapy allows you to move in the correct manner to avoid any pain and continue in your progress. 

In the final step, you’ll be taught the movements you must follow to avoid future injuries and be a program given exercises that will help you recover fully.   If you’re experiencing shoulder pain, make an appointment at BPC in Bangkok for a diagnosis and a program of physiotherapy that will restore you to complete health.
