The shoulder is made up 3 key bones- the upper arm bone or 'Humerus', the shoulder blade or 'Scapula' and the collar bone or 'Clavicle'. It is known as the shoulder complex with good reason- for something so simple it can suffer from a wealth of issues.

Within this complex are a number of joints and muscles that attach the collar bone to the shoulder blade, the collar bone to the breastbone and finally the joint made up of the Shoulder blade sitting on the rib cage. There's a lot going on there. By design its not that stable on so relies on a number of anatomical features to stabilise its structure. Combining all of these together its easy to see why shoulder issues can occur regularly.  Problems in this area may result in one or more of the following- all of which we can treat:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Shoulder impingement syndromes
  • Shoulder dislocations or subluxations
  • Shoulder instabilities
  • Joint capsule pathologies
  • Rotator Cuff tendinitis
  • Acromio-clavicular joint issues
  • Bicep tendinitis
  • Bruises and tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Trapped nerves
  • Fractures
  • Post operative repairs
