Shoulder complaints are a common problem in Dutch GP and physiotherapy practice. After back pain, they form the largest group of musculoskeletal complaints. Between 7 and 34% of adults sometimes have shoulder complaints.
We have developed a shoulder care programme in collaboration with GPs and an orthopaedist since mid-2013. This means that the GP and the physiotherapist work together to optimise care for patients with shoulder complaints. Thanks to our long-term experience in the field of shoulder complaints, you can come to us well with your shoulder problems.
Common causes of shoulder pain:
To start with, we make a proper analysis of the complaint. In doing so, we look not only at your shoulder but also at your neck and spine. Then, first of all, we aim to enable (pain-free) movement of the joint, as this is the main prerequisite for building strength.
