What is referred pain?

Pain is commonly referred to the shoulder and upper arm from other areas of the body. Dysfunction within the neck frequently causes referred pain to the shoulder region.

Our physiotherapists at Manchester Physio commonly assess and treat people with referred pain.

Your physiotherapist at Manchester Physio will conduct a thorough assessment to understand the nature of your referred pain and develop an individualised treatment program to get you back to a level you were previously, as soon as possible. Physiotherapy treatment for referred pain may involve:
  • Joint mobilisation and manipulation of the affected joints causing the referred pain
  • Heat therapy
  • Soft tissue massage to relieve tight muscles groups
  • Stretching exercises to relieve pain and stiffness
  • Strengthening exercises to increase joint stability and to maximise potential with everyday activities
