Physio Edge podcast

When your female patient has shoulder pain, how can you identify if the cause is musculoskeletal, or related to women’s health issues? Find out in this podcast with Jo Gibson (Clinical Physiotherapy Specialist). You’ll explore two separate case studies of female shoulder pain patients with different diagnoses, that’ll help you discover:

  • Which female reproductive issues can cause shoulder pain?
  • How can you differentiate musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal causes of shoulder pain?
  • Is pain at different stages of the menstrual cycle really just “hormones”?
  • What questions can you ask your patients to help guide your diagnosis?
  • What is the typical history of patients with shoulder pain related to women’s health?
  • If patients wake with acute shoulder pain, what are the potential musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal diagnoses?
