Shoulder Physiotherapist: Everything You Need To Know
If you are experiencing shoulder pain, you may be considering seeing a shoulder physiotherapist. This is a great decision! A physiotherapist can help you to understand the source of your shoulder pain and provide treatment that will help to reduce or eliminate the pain.
What should I know about this?
There are a few things that you should know before you see a physiotherapist. First, you will need to have a referral from your doctor. Without a referral, your insurance may not cover the cost of the visit. Second, be sure to bring any imaging (MRI, X-ray) that has been done on your shoulder so that the physiotherapist can review it. Finally, be prepared to answer questions about your shoulder pain, such as when it started, what makes it better or worse, and how it affects your daily life.
The physiotherapist will likely start by asking you about your symptoms and medical history. They will then do a physical examination of your shoulder.
