Shoulder pain or injury

At Witty, Pask and Buckingham Chartered Physiotherapists all our physiotherapists are vastly experienced in treatment shoulder pain and injury. This maybe an injury that has slowly developed or as a result of a traumatic event. We have also rehabilitated thousands of shoulders recovering from surgical procedures. Some of our specialist physiotherapists also have a wealth of knowledge dealing with peripheral nerve injuries and complex shoulder dislocations and instability.

The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the body, which is why it can achieve such complex movement patterns and can be incredibly strong. However, this amazing range of movement sometimes comes with its problems and irregularities. There are many symptoms and conditions that affect the shoulder and I hope this page helps give you an understanding of some of the most common ones we may come across.

Remember, shoulder pain can travel or refer up towards the neck, down the shoulder blade and more frequently down the arm, often as far as the hand. This is what makes it one of the most complex areas of the body to treat.
