Shoulder & Arm Pain

 

Frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, golfers' elbow and RSI (repetitive strain injury) are some of the many conditions that occur in the shoulder and arm.

 

Osteopaths restore the correct muscle tension and balance in this area as well as ensuring the neck, upper back and lower back are working well as this is very important for the shoulder girdle  to function properly and recover from injury.

 

Osteopaths at Princes Avenue Osteopathic Clinic often give rehabilitative exercise to strengthen the shoulder or stretch tight muscles. The exercises are specific to the problem such as frozen shoulder exercises if you have frozen shoulder.

 

If the Osteopath finds your shoulder pain is referred from another area it may be necessary to have further investigations to determine the cause e.g. the gall bladder can cause shoulder pain.
