shoulder_painThe shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. However, because of the range of motion allowed it is an unstable joint. Stability within the shoulder is maintained through the surrounding structures including the joint capsule, ligaments and surrounding muscles. Any disturbance to these structures or alterations in the way the shoulder moves can cause problems and pain. These commonly include:

Frozen shoulder (Capsulitis)
Acromioclavicular joint pain

Our physiotherapists use the same special tests as orthopaedic consultants to diagnose your shoulder problem. An appropriate course of treatment is then decided upon with a view to correcting any abnormalities. Occasionally you may need to be referred for further investigations. This can be organised through our Doncaster, Dinnington or Chesterfield clinic. Contact us for further information.
