Principle Four Osteopathy has seen an influx of clients attending the practice recently for the treatment of shoulder pain resulting from training in the gym.  These injuries have either been related to overuse, increasing the weights too quickly or poor technique.  Common shoulder injuries occurring in the gym include Rotator Cuff Strains and Tendinopathies, Biceps Tendinopathies, Subacromial Impingement and Bursitis.  If you suffer from recurring shoulder complaints whilst lifting weight (typically pushing and pressing movements such as chest press, dumbbell flys and press, military press, lateral raises, incline chest work and dips), then perhaps it is time to see an Osteopath with experience in training, conditioning and corrective exercise.

Osteopath Heath Williams has an interest in sports related injuries and corrective exercise.  If you are looking to revise your current exercise program, change your current workout to reduce irritating your shoulder or looking to treat the shoulder complaint, then please give us a call on 03 9670 9290.  Appointments can be made by calling the clinic or booking online at  Initial consultations last 45-60 minutes, with return consultations 30-40 minutes.
