Shoulder

Shoulder pain is a common complaint seen in the clinic. It can present as localised shoulder pain or more diverse pain spreading down the arm or up the neck. 

There are many factors that can contribute to shoulder pain. Some of these are muscle imbalance / instability, impingement (nipping of structures inside the shoulder joint), rotator cuff problems, spinal stiffness and poor posture.  More often than not there is a combination of these issues which need to be addressed. Our comprehensive treatments include:

  • Posture Correction and Advice
  • Specific Shoulder Mobilisations
  • Massage / Soft Tissue Mobilisations
  • Spinal Mobilisations
  • Shoulder Taping
  • Rotator Cuff Strengthening Exercises
  • Progressive Exercise Programme

Elbow

Common elbow problems we see at our clinic are tennis and golfers elbow. Believe it or not, you don’t have to play tennis or golf to suffer with these conditions.

They are overuse or overload injuries of the muscles of the forearm. The tendons of the muscles of the forearm attach around the elbow and this is why this area can become painful.  

Tennis elbow manifests pain over the outside of the elbow where the muscles of the top of the forearm attach and golfers elbow is more painful on the inside relating to where the muscles on the underside of the forearm attach. Pain may also spread down the forearm and often gripping is uncomfortable.

Treatments include:

  • Activity Modification Advice
  • Specific Elbow / Wrist Joint Mobilisations
  • Specific Soft Tissue Mobilisations
  • Taping 
  • Strengthening and Stretching Exercises

Knee

There are many different causes and contributing factors for knee pain, whether it’s at the front of the knee, around the kneecap, over either side, or at the back. Depending on the cause, other symptoms may include swelling, giving way, or locking.

We always start with a thorough verbal and physical assessment to help us make the correct diagnosis. Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Ligament and Cartilage Injuries
  • Maltracking Patella (Poorly Aligned Kneecap)
  • Arthritis
