    Pain Between Shoulder Blades:

    Pain between shoulder blades can produce that nagging type of pain that is difficult to reach. Most often it is related to muscle problems, however, a herniated disc or pinched nerve in the neck can cause pain in this area, along with neck joint irritation. These causes usually respond to neck and/or shoulder movements. Pain between the shoulders can also be referred by the heart, stomach and gallbladder or, if you have osteoporosis, a possible compression fracture.

    If there has been a past injury to the area or from years of poor posture, a degenerative condition like arthritis can develop in the area between the shoulders causing upper back pain.

    Muscle Pain Between Shoulders:

    While there are many muscles that can cause pain between the shoulder blades, the major muscles often involved are the trapezius and the rhomboid. The trapezius is a large muscle, while the rhomboid is a smaller muscle that runs between the spine and the shoulder blades.

    With typical poor postural habits, the head is forward and the back becomes rounded. As the upper back becomes rounded, the rhomboid muscles stretch out. This is typically seen with a slumped posture when sitting at a computer or desk. The muscles become overstretched and weak, placing abnormal stress on the spinal bones, altered motion and, over time, can develop scar tissues from small tears which develop.

    Treatment of the muscles with moist heat therapy and massage techniques can help. A particular technique called ischemic compression can be used for tender areas often called trigger points, seen in the picture with the “X”. This technique uses a tennis ball or special neck muscle release tool. Place the ball or release tool on the floor and lay on your back with the ball or tool between the shoulder blades. You can control the pressure and when you find a tender area, hold it until the pain gradually fades – about 20 to 30 seconds, although it may take a minute.

    For those with chronic problems that need more than compression due to excessive scar tissue, the help of a professional Physiotherapist should help. Considerable involvement of the trapezius can cause what is often termed trapezius myalgia and the are exercises for the trapezius muscle that have proven beneficial. Since arthritic changes and joint problems may occur, this is a common area for careful spinal adjustments.

    Upper back pain pillow:

    The use of lumbar support pillows, which help maintain the normal curve of the lower back when sitting, can help to correct rounded shoulder posture, especially when driving a car or working at a desk. The back of the chair should not be pushed forward and should have a slight backward angle. These tips for the best posture when sitting at a computer can be helpful.

    For those who sit for long periods and get so involved in work that they forget to take breaks and change postures, a timer set for 20 to 30 minutes can be placed in a location that you must get up to turn it off and reset it can be a great solution.

    For some, the use of a posture support brace can assist the muscles of the upper back and spine to assume the correct posture. A universal support will allow gradual adjustments as your posture improves, so it will be a temporary aid.

    When using armrests on a chair, having them too low can stress the trapezius muscle, too high can cause tension of the neck and shoulder muscles, so try to sit close to your desk with the armrests at desk level.

    Often, with rounded shoulder posture, the chest muscles (pectorals) can become tight and the in the door stretch can help with tight pectoral muscles and overstretched trapezius and rhomboid muscles.

    Stretch for pain between shoulder blades:

    Use of door frames or resistance bands is of great use.

    Sleeping with pain between shoulder blades:

    For those who like to sleep on their side and have difficulty finding a comfortable position due to pain between shoulder blades, a pillow can be placed under the affected arm to prevent it from rotating forward and stretching the trapezius and rhomboid muscles. There are body pillows that can help keep the back from twisting the lower part of the trapezius and can also fit under the arm at the same time. A compact body pillow can achieve this without being to heavy or bulky. A neck pillow designed for side sleeping can add the final touch to a comfortable night’s sleep that reduces pain between shoulder blades.

    Disc & Joint Causes Of Pain Between Shoulder Blades

    A facet joint problem involving the small joints in the back of the neck may cause pain between shoulder blades. The lower facet joints can radiate pain to this area. This can often be as a result of a whiplash type injury or in those who spend long periods working overhead or looking up. So, this pain might be felt more when tilting the head backward. For those who work in this position, a support for the back of the head can help.

    The lower discs in the neck can become herniated, torn or degenerative changes can occur which place pressure on the nerves and this may also cause pain between shoulder blades. C7 or C8 nerve pain can radiate between the shoulder blades. Typically, there will be other symptoms like pain or tingling/numbness into the arm or hand, but sometimes neck pain and pain between shoulder blades are the only sign.

    Difficult cases involving pain between shoulder blades may require medications and perhaps an orthopedic consultation, however, some home treatments using moist heat, posture changes and traction units may help.

    Since these various conditions may occur together, a more comprehensive approach may be required to treat pain between shoulder blades not responding to basic postural modification and conservative therapies.

    7 Step Rehabilitation
    We have created a revolutionary 7 Step Program to eliminate your back pain and keep it away. Through this program you can recover fully and keep future pain at bay.

    To fully recover from an injury or an episode of physical pain everybody needs to move through 7 stages of recovery. Future injury, greater health costs and ongoing frustration are assured if shortcuts are taken or treatment is prematurely ceased.

    Every individual will commence at different stages of this process. Some will move more quickly through some stages whilst others move more slowly. Everybody is different.

    Step 1 - Tissue Normalization
    First we bring the injury under control, so your tissues can begin to heal. This helps the injured part to function smoothly with the rest of the body.
    Step 2 - Muscle Activation
    An injury is extremely painful, and makes movement difficult. By activating injured muscles early, you'll recover sooner.
    Step 3 - Static Control
    Develop sufficient strength and control of your injured body part to hold a neutral position whilst other parts are moving.
    Step 4 - Dynamic Control
    Develop the strength to control the injured body part during movement. By increasing endurance, you'll be able to maintain dynamic control.
    Step 5 - Functional Rehabilitation
    You're well on your way to full recovery. This stage customises your rehabilitation to your specific needs.
    Step 6 - Functional Fitness
    This stage is ensures you have the necessary physical fitness, power, endurance, body awareness, strength and flexibility to perform physically.
    Step 7 - Maintenance Program
    To make sure you don't experience a recurring injury, we tailor a program to keep you fighting fit, monitor your progress and continue to supervise rehabilitation.

    Sports Physiotherapists work with weekend warriors, aspirational athletes, professional sports people and Olympic champions.

    Sports Injury Treatment
    The immediate treatment of any soft tissue injury consists of the RICER protocol - rest, ice, compression, elevation and referral. The protocol should be followed for 48-72 hours. The aim is to reduce the bleeding and damage within the joint.
    The No HARM protocol should also be applied - no heat, no alcohol, no running or activity, and no massage. This will ensure decreased bleeding and swelling in the injured area.
    This regime should be used for all ligament sprains, muscle sprains and muscle bruises. Referral for bumps and bruises which occur in sport or physical activity, other than those which are minor is recommended.

    Women's Health & Continence

    Women's Health and Continence Physiotherapists specialize in the function of the pelvic floor - a sling of muscles between the legs.
    The Pelvic floor reaches from side to side across the floor of the pelvis and is attached to the pubic bone in front, and to the coccyx (the tail end of the spine) behind. It forms our undercarriage and serves to hold our pelvic and abdominal contents up and in.

    The pelvic floor can be weakened during pregnancy, childbirth and with aging. Whilst we all have a pelvic floor the majority of problems occur in women with the most common problem being incontinence. Nevertheless men suffering from incontinence (usually post-prostatectomy) and even erectile dysfunction can be helped by physiotherapists who specialise in the pelvic floor.

    The openings from the bladder (urethra), bowels (rectum) and womb (vagina) all pass through the pelvic floor, so it is easy to understand how a problem in this area can lead to a range of debilitating conditions such as
    Stress and urge incontinence
    Pelvic organ prolapse (bladder, uterus or bowel)
    Pelvic pain syndromes (vulvodynia, vestibulitis, vaginismus)
    Bowel disorders (irritable bowel, constipation)

    Women's Health and Continence Physiotherapist (Dr Komal Kakkar) can assess these problems and advise on the correct exercises to improve your condition

    Red Flag Questions
    If you answer yes to any of the questions below please call now for an assessment.
    Do you lose any urine when you cough, sneeze or run?
    Does your bladder become urgent?
    Did you experience any back pain during pregnancy?
    Do you have any separation of your stomach muscles?
    Post-birth, did your doctor find any prolapse?
    Did you have a difficult delivery?
    Are you concerned you may have a prolapse?
    Have you had any pelvic or spinal surgery?
    Do you have any concerns with your bowel control?
    Do you regularly strain to use your bowels?
    Did menopause make your bladder concerns more marked?
    Are you unsure about how to contract your pelvic floor muscles correctly?
    Pelvic Floor Fitness Test
    In just 30 minutes our Women's Health & Continence Physiotherapists can assess your pelvic floor. This non-invasive screening test could change your world.

    Non-Invasive Examination
    Physical or visual examination of the pelvic floor is not always required. The function of the pelvic floor can often be satisfactorily assessed by real time ultrasound, allowing both the therapist and patient to see its function, during assessment and as a biofeedback tool during retraining.

    Exercise Rehabilitation

    Exercise does more than anything known to medical science to ensure a fit, healthy and happy life.
    The benefits include
    weight loss
    improved physical appearance
    improved general health
    improved outlook for longevity
    Regular exercise enhances health by improving cardiovascular functioning, bone density, and immune functioning.

    People who are physically active are much less likely to suffer from heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, back problems and colon cancer. They are more likely to experience a stronger sense of wellbeing and exhibit better health-related factors such as body composition, glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. Physical activity also increases high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ("good" cholesterol) and reduces triglyceride (the chief constituent of fats) levels and blood pressure.

    Ten Essentials of Exercise Rehabilitation
    Research evidence over the last ten years has shown that exercise is also central in the treatment of musculoskeletal and chronic pain conditions. More recent physiotherapy research shows the following ten principles are vital to ensure safe and durable return to normal function
    No pain allowed
    Correct and monitor posture
    Focus on the sensory input
    Don't brace and breathe normally
    Pre-activate target muscle groups
    High quality better than high repetitions
    Controlled movement, not jerky
    Progress slowly
    Vary the exercises
    Exercise regularly

    Clinical Pilates
    Watch a child move and you cannot help but be entranced by the freedom and grace of their movement. Unfortunately, the pathway to adulthood is littered with influences that can produce a gradual and insidious decline in physical function.
    As a consequence, new and poorer patterns of movement may develop, until efficiency becomes so compromised that the body's supporting structures fail and pain occurs. Whilst a very gradual process (often mistakenly assumed to be a normal and irreversible part of ageing), it is often not until some minor trauma is experienced that pushes a person over the edge to pain that help is sought.

    Physiotherapists have long been experts in reducing pain and improving physical function. Physiotherapists have embraced Pilates and combined it with the latest scientific research into core stability, movement patterning and physical pathology to develop a new, unique rehabilitation process called Clinical Pilates.

    Individually Tailored Programs
    On first attendance in our clinic you will spend an hour with a physiotherapist for a thorough examination, including the use of still and video digital analysis of posture and movement quality. A thorough program will be developed and you will be taught how to improve the quality of your movement and motor control.
    After the initial assessment you will then commence your program under constant supervision - each person will have their own program and are able to proceed at their own pace, whilst a physiotherapist ensures correct performance and modifications as required.
    Changing entrenched movement patterns takes time so we do not recommend reassessment until after twenty sessions. Once the problem has been resolved we will recommend a maintenance program via Pilates instruction.

    Whether in pain, injured or incapacitated we help people regain their natural freedom and grace. Move with ease and discover the joy and pleasure of a healthy body.
    Clinical Pilates is a superior form of exercise rehabilitation because healthy movement requires more than just strong muscles.
    Back pain is more due to fatigue of muscles than due to disk.
