Shoulder Physiotherapists in Melbourne
The shoulder is a very complex, mobile and unstable joint. Although it has a significant degree of mobility, its weakness in resisting forces makes the shoulder susceptible to dislocation. If you’re suffering from a rotary cuff tear, shoulder instability or impingement, or overuse injuries such as Bursitis, you’ve come to the right place.
Our shoulder physio in Melbourne is unique in how we deliver shoulder physio treatments with a focus on biomechanics, movement and musculoskeletal stability. We aim to fix problems at the source, not just treat the symptoms, so you exhaust all conservative (non-invasive) treatment options before considering surgery.

Yes, our treatment plans are tailored to your specific requirements, which means you’ll get the best possible result. Our physiotherapists are experts in shoulder pain and injury, helping to relieve pain, improve function and prevent future injury.
What does a physio do for shoulder pain?
Physiotherapists are experts in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal injuries. After analysing the root cause, treatment will generally involve a combination of soft tissue release, exercises and manual therapy to alleviate pain and help mobility. You’ll also learn to prevent future injuries through a strengthening plan and correct biomechanics.
What's involved with shoulder therapy?
Injury rehabilitation for your shoulder will depend on your needs. Therapies may include massage, dry needling, taping, heat and ice, and functional exercises. Our shoulder specialists will also provide a strengthening program and biomechanical feedback to prevent future injuries.
How long will my shoulder take to heal?
It depends on your injury’s severity, but our supervised treatment plans generally last between 1-6 weeks. However, some injuries may take several months or more to heal. Even after treatment, we still suggest that patients continue with shoulder physiotherapy exercises to further strengthen their shoulders muscles and ligaments.
What are some good exercises to restore shoulder mobility?
You can practise several stretches and exercises to help your shoulder joint move through its full range of motion. In addition to restoring mobility, the right exercises can also prevent shoulder tightness and further injury. We recommend Standing arm swings, Reverse flys, dumbbell rotations, and the shoulder pass-through exercise (generally performed with a long stick) to help you build shoulder strength and range of motion.
What can I expect in our first session?
First and foremost, our physiotherapists will listen to your needs and understand the extent of your injury. We’ll then perform a full shoulder assessment where the patient performs active movements, including flexion, extension, abduction and internal and external rotation. Your physiotherapist will also check for muscle weakness or asymmetry in your shoulder.
Because of your shoulder’s many small structures, where lesions can occur inside or outside your joints, we will also require your medical history along with any treatment methods you’re currently engaged in.
