Perth’s Shoulder Physio Expert
Is your shoulder pain impacting your lifestyle? Are you growing frustrated with a lack of improvement, despite visiting your physio for shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain can be complex and confusing. Patients with shoulder pain and shoulder injuries often find it extremely difficult to obtain an accurate diagnosis. An expert Perth shoulder physio can help.
Introducing… Adam McKnight My Physio Perth’s expert shoulder physio.
Adam has worked as a shoulder physiotherapist for the Perth Shoulder Clinic’s specialist shoulder surgeons and assisted hundreds of patients with physiotherapy after shoulder surgery. He’s even helped patients avoid shoulder surgery altogether.
Not only does Adam have vast experience in acute shoulder injuries such as shoulder dislocations and rotator cuff tears, he has experienced a shoulder dislocation and surgery himself, so he truly understands the pain and frustration you may be experiencing.
Common Shoulder Injuries
- AC Joint Injuries
- Rotator Cuff Tears and Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
- Subacromial Bursitis or Shoulder Bursitis
- Dislocated Shoulder
- Frozen Shoulder
Specialised Shoulder Physiotherapy Appointments
A shoulder physio appointment with Adam is so specialised, that a longer initial consultation is required.
This allows enough time for a thorough examination, diagnosis, explanation of your injury, treatment and exercises to perform at home.
Adam’s high level of expertise and thoroughness, means this appointment is priced higher than a standard physio appointment.
