Shoulder & Elbow Pain

Shoulder Pain & Physiotherapy

Four joints are present in the shoulder: the sternoclavicular (SC), acromioclavicular (AC), scapulothoracic joints (SH), and glenohumeral joint (GH). The main shoulder joint (GH), is a joint with the most extensive range of motion in the human body and it is the most movable joint in the body.

But it is also an unstable joint because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the socket of the shoulder, it is at risk of injury. The shoulder joint is supported by surroundings tissues. including muscles (rotator cuff, biceps, triceps etc) ligaments (glenohumeral, oraco-acromial, oraco-clavicular, and transverse humeral ligament), bursa, capsule etc.

The shoulder muscles have a wide range of functions. Most common injuries of the shoulder are shoulder instability, arthritis, rotator cuff tear, tendonitis or tendinosis, calcified tendonitis, frozen shoulder, overuse strain, fractures,impingement syndrome, also sometimes the problem at the glenohumeral joints or the other joints even the neck and it just manifests as shoulder pain.

Excellent physiotherapists. The owner is always friendly and polite. He answered all of my very numerous questions with explanations in simple language we, neophytes, can understand. He pinpointed what was wrong with my neck and developed a plan that worked very well for me. Already feeling a lot better after only 3 weeks. I would definitely recommend them!
