The shoulder joint enjoys a huge range of motion, it is the most flexible joint in the body. This flexibility can come at a price – you may pay for it with potential instability, frequently leading to tendinopathies (tendon tears).

It should not be forgotten that pain you feel in your shoulder can come from other parts of the body. Neck problems can refer to either or both shoulders especially if posture is poor. Angina can refer to the left shoulder and arm and gall bladder issues can refer to the right shoulder

Shoulder pain arises for a variety of reasons. There are many shoulder conditions including:-

  1. Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
  2. Rotator cuff tendinopathies including impingement syndrome
  3. Bursitis (Inflammation of a bursa or fluid filled sac)
  4. Dislocation
  5. Arthritis although this is less common in shoulders, as it is not a weight bearing joint.

With so many different causes of shoulder pain, a proper assessment is necessary, and Laurens Holve is frequently called upon to do this. Mobility assessment gives vital clues as to which part of the joint is affected.

Shoulders usually respond well to both Osteopathic manipulative treatment as well as Acupuncture. We have helped many patients over the years with this combined approach.

Treatment works best if carried out early on as shoulder problems tend to become chronic quite easily.
