Shoulder expert in Canberra?

By Houk - 19 July 2013 5

I’ve been having some problems with my shoulders for about the last 18 months.  A quick ultrasound shows some bursitis in the right one and nothing as of yet in the left.

I’ve been to several physiotherapists and following the stretching/strengthening exercises they’ve given me but nothing seems to be helping.

So… does anyone have any recommendations for someone who is good with shoulders in the ACT?

What’s Your opinion?

If you’ve had this for 18 months it sounds like physiotherapy and regular anti-inflammatories wouldn’t be enough (although completely believe that you will likely need ongoing and regular physio). Would go to your regular health care provider and request an ultrasound-guided steroid injection or a referral to a sports medicine doctor.

I recommend Griffith Massage Centre. They’ve got some very effective remedial massage therapists.

Chris Roberts at Deakin is very good. Operated on both my wife’s shoulders. Can heartily reccommend him.

Lucky he had to do both shoulders. He must have been having a bad day when I saw him because he got confused with left and right. No harm done but it was very offputting.

Roy Daniel at the Belconnen Physio Centre.

Although I think you need a referal to see him. After 2 years seeing a different physio, about a dozen sessions over 6 weeks eliminated my pain and restrictions from severe scar tissue.

Worth noting – I remember having an interesting discussion with him regarding the above statement. Some physio’s are brilliant for one person, useless to the next. You just have to find the right fit with the way they treat injuries.
