Arm and shoulder pain

As previously mentioned, pain and disability around the shoulder or radiating into the arm, is often related to a problem in the neck or upper back. There are however certain common conditions we see a lot of at the Newmarket Osteopathic Clinic. eg Rotator Cuff Syndrome, Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder) and a great number of other muscular and soft tissue sprains and strains; not forgetting problems with the shoulder blade (scapular), collar bone (clavicle) and the smaller joints of the shoulder girdle (the acromioclavicular and sternoclavicular joints).

Bearing in mind that symptoms can be related to the spine, it is important to undergo a thorough assessment by an experienced professional before treatment begins and, over the years, Stephen has been asked to do this many times. If he feels that osteopathic treatment is appropriate, ultrasound or laser therapy in addition to the physical therapy, is often used.
