The Shoulder Rehab Specialists in Brisbane

Sports Shoulder Rehab

The Shoulder is a complex multiaxial ball and socket joint that can be injured via many different external or internal factors. This may be due to contact, an awkward landing, long-term degeneration, poor lifting technique and general tightness amongst surrounding areas which affect its mobility. The shoulder can suffer from many injuries such as the below: 


  • Dislocations

  • Fractures 

  • Subluxations

  • Cartilage Tears

  • Rotator Cuff tears 

  • Frozen Shoulder 

  • Impingement

  • Bursitis 

  • General inflammation

  • Tendonitis 

  • Multidirectional instability 

Prevention is Key

The best advice we can give athletes who are starting to feel their shoulders become consistently sore or are experiencing pinpointed pain is to ensure their recovery and strength training is optimal. It is extremely important that athletes look after themselves and find that 30 minutes per day to keep their bodies healthy. In terms of preventative shoulder injuries, managing throwing load, overhead movements, push-to-pull ratios, consistent stretching/triggering or massage, cold water exposure and light aerobic exercise are all big factors to keeping your shoulders healthy. Even looking at total Alcohol consumption and general food intake can all play a part in inflammatory responses which can aid the efficiency of recovery. 

Shoulder Rehab

In terms of shoulder Rehab, whilst every injury is different we can provide a general rule of thumb for athletes suffering from shoulder pain or a light strain. Firstly, consult a physician to gauge how serious the injury is. From there, maintaining load through your muscles is very important. We highly encourage working through pain-free ranges which allow for controlled muscle contraction. Keeping your Pecs, Lats, Traps, Delts, Rotators and Serratus muscle groups firing are important to maintain muscular balance and decrease the risk of further injuries later in Rehab. When specifically talking about Shoulder Rehab your Push to Pull strength ratio is of our highest priority. Athletes with weak Posterior Muscles compared to their Anterior muscles will usually struggle with high load, repetition and intensity efforts. Your posterior chain we deem the foundation of upper body strength as it provides a strong base for scapular control and shoulder positioning.
