Although problems with the shoulder are very common, they were, until a few years ago, poorly understood by many practitioners. Shoulder examination, surgery and research have dramatically changed over the last decade. Shoulders are not just injured during sport; they are commonly affected in office workers due to excessive keyboard use and the repetitive strain caused by poor posture. The shoulder girdle can impinge, dislocate, break, become stiff and inflamed.
Physiotherapy is a logical first port of call. The shoulder will be assessed and treatment planned accordingly. If we feel that further investigation or orthopaedic surgery is required we can arrange an accelerated appointment to a specialist Shoulder Surgeon.
