Melbourne Shoulder Physiotherapy @ Complete Physio
Dr. Phillip Hughes has a special expertise in treating shoulder conditions. He has published on shoulder diagnosis and treatment in international journals and lectured on shoulder conditions, around the world. He sees people from around Victoria and from interstate for their shoulder pain. He often consults to provide second opinions or for people who are failing to respond in other settings.
Examples of shoulder conditions that are seen at Melbourne Shoulder Physiotherapy @Complete Physio include:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Shoulder impingement
- Shoulder instability
- Labral tears
- A/C injuries
- Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
Dr. Phillip Hughes also works very closely with Melbourne’s best shoulder surgeons for a team approach to their client’s issues.
Of course, Phillip has many years of treating other body regions and his expertise does extend across the body.
Our physiotherapists use ultrasound imaging to assess patients with shoulder, lower back, pelvis and hip pain. Ultrasound allows us to see – “live” on the screen – how the deep supporting muscles of your lower back and abdomen are working. We can also visualise muscles and tendons that have been damaged. This helps us to pinpoint problems and develop targeted rehabilitation programs to improve muscle function.
