Shoulder Physiotherapy in Peterborough and Stamford

Shoulder physiotherapy aims to restore normal function of the arm following injury or pain. This involves use of treatments including mobilisation, exercise and manual therapy. We treat injuries following traumatic accidents such as a fall. Injuries can also build up over time leading to shoulder pain. Our physiotherapists have vast experience working with the general population, amateur athletes as well as elite athletes and olympic medal winners. All within our Peterborough and Stamford physiotherapy clinics.


Damage to the shoulder may result in a variety of symptoms including pain, numbness, swelling, bruising, stiffness or weakness. During your appointment our physiotherapists will establish what structure had been damaged and how badly it was damaged. They will do this by assessing the injured area. This is normally pain free and involves observation, hands on assessment and by performing certain tests. They will then tell you the diagnosis. The shoulder is a complicated joint and the physiotherapist may also examine the neck and upper back during the assessment. Common injuries to the shoulder include rotator cuff related pain and a frozen shoulder.


After the diagnosis and answering any relevant questions you may have, treatment will begin. Treatment is normally pain free and can involve the following:


  • Manual therapy: This is the fancy term for hands on treatment. Including joint mobilisations or manipulations and soft tissue techniques such as massage.

  • Exercise rehabilitation: Aiming to strengthen, mobilise, and stretch specific areas. With the shoulder theraband is often used.

  • Movement analysis and correction: To improve alignment, adress movement patterns, reduce the load on sensitive tissues, and improve performance.

  • Education and advice: By giving you additional advice on the injury we can maximise how your body recovers from your injury. It also allows you to understand and take part in your recovery. We will adress any specific goals you have and the best way to achieve them.  With the shoulder we will discuss relevant medications, use of ice/heat along with other tips.
