Shoulder Pain


Shoulder Pain

Refers to any form of pain felt in the shoulder or around the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the human body. Including four tendons that have the function of holding the muscle to the bone. Any swelling, inflammation, tearing or bony changes around the tendons in the shoulder causes pain. Predominately when a person tries to move the arm upwards, backwards, straight out or in front.

Common causes include:

  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Tears
  • Ruptures to any of the four tendons.

Shoulder instability and dislocation is very common, leading to a host of conditions in this complex area of the body.

Botox (Botulinum Toxin A)

A good candidate would have:

  • Easily identifiable trigger points
  • Permanently contracted muscles
  • Headaches that are associated with muscle spasms.

Botox is the industry name for Botulinum toxin type A. Derived from a strain of bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. Therefore when Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks the signals sent from the brain which tells the muscle to contract. However when Botox targets the muscles involved by effectively disarming them and ensuring that they do not send panic signals throughout the body. The body believes that there is no pain being experienced. It can help to keep the muscle relaxed for anywhere from three to six months. Above all it is hoped that the muscle will be able to contract normally without pain or spasms.


All  aesthetic & medical treatments are performed by our medical team. Patients are free to leave as soon as the treatment has been administered. Initially, the treating Practitioner will spend time identifying the individual trigger points. Then will mark the areas with a pen, to then begin treatment.

Specialist anti-wrinkle injections treatments at Persona

Our expertise and experience allows our medical team to use anti-wrinkle injections for other concerns such as excessive sweating and migraines.

Excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) can be treated by injecting Botox into the sweat glands. In around the nerve endings, inhibiting the sweat gland, so less sweat is produced. Commonly we treat the forehead, top lip, under arm area as well as palms and the soles of the feet. Results can last between 6 to 12 months.

Botox can also be used for the relief of migraines and tension headaches – a treatment that’s becoming increasingly popular.
