Shoulder pain can present in a number of different ways, from the painful “frozen shoulder” that hurts all the time and doesn’t move, to the acute dislocation from a rugby tackle, to the tendinitis or bursitis that makes your shoulder sore when you lift it or lie on it. The issue could be that your shoulder is truly tight or unstable, or it could be compensating for a stiff ribcage or twisted pelvis. Shoulder pain treatment or shoulder physiotherapy starts with understanding the real causes.
Each shoulder problem has its own specific cause, and therefore the best way to treat each shoulder may be completely different.
When I treat you, we’ll start off by discussing when your shoulder hurts: all the time, or just when you’re brushing your hair or putting your jacket on? I then look at your posture and your movement patterns throughout your whole body, especially with regard to the activity or posture that hurts you most, in order to work out where your problem is originating from.

The Prime Minister’s announcement on 1 Nov was clear that medical services should continue, and that people who need medical appointments should continue to attend them. Therefore the clinic will remain open, with everything wipe-clean and COVID-safe.
However, the current government advice is that I have to see patients online before I can see you in clinic, and that I should only see you face to face (or mask to mask!) if we both agree that the benefits of hands-on treatment outweigh the risks of coronavirus transmission. If hands-on treatment is not the most appropriate option for you, then I will continue to offer online treatment for the foreseeable future.
