Physiotherapy for Shoulder Pain

BOSIC Specials

Suffering from a sore or stiff shoulder? 

By Sam Davison, Principal Physiotherapist

Every time you reach up to grab something – a book from a library shelf or a coffee cup from your kitchen – you get a shooting pain in your shoulder. No amount of heat gels or ice packs have solved the problem. You need professional help. 


The shoulder  is inherently a very mobile joint – perhaps one of the most mobile – and it requires good control and muscle function to swing in all directions and generate significant power. Given the number of muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones that work for this to happen, shoulder dysfunction and pain can occur for many reasons. In some cases, shoulder pain can be referred from other sources such as the neck or upper back and although less likely, even the heart. Problems in the shoulder can occur with everyday wear and tear, overuse or an isolated injury. 


But there is good news. In almost all cases, Physiotherapy can help ease symptoms and get your back to do things you love. A Physiotherapy assessment will allow your treating practitioner to pin point the source of your pain as well as identify the cause of your shoulder problem. 

Common conditions we treat are:

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendinopathies
  • ACJ injuries 
  • Dislocations 
  • Instability 
  • Post-Op surgical repairs
  • Fractures

So click on the video below for these easy “deskercises”. Your aching back will say thank you. And who knows, you just might find yourself walking regally like Meghan Markle (just hold back on the royal wave, will ya?).

Right Royal Recipe: Scones

You might think scones are “posh posh”, but they’re surprisingly easy to bake and oh-so-satisfying! They’re perfect with an afternoon cuppa to beat the winter chills. The only question is: do you spread your jam first and then your cream, or the other way around? 


  • 2&1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 50g cold unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 300mL thickened cream
  • Strawberry jam 


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. 
  2. Put the flour, salt, sugar and butter into a large mixing bowl. Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips. Mix until it resembles breadcrumbs. 
  3. Now make a well in the centre and add the milk. Stir with a spatula or blunt knife until it just comes together. Do not over mix! 
  4. Put the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it just a little. The less you knead the dough, the lighter and more crumbly your scones will be. 
  5. Roll dough to a 2-3cm thickness. With a 6cm round cookie cutter (or even the rim of a glass), cut out circles from the dough until all the dough has been used up. 
  6. Place them slightly apart on the lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of each scone with extra milk. 
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with lashings of cream and strawberry jam. Enjoy!
