  • Shoulder Instability & dislocation: In shoulder instability, the shoulder joint becomes loose and prone to recurrent dislocations. There are various treatment options available including physiotherapy or surgery.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff can be damaged through injury or wear and tear. Pain is felt in the shoulder and this may radiate down the arm to the elbow. It is often felt more acutely when completing certain tasks, such as lifting and reaching.
