Shoulder consultant near Bromley

Are you suffering from shoulder pain or a shoulder condition? Are you based in Bromley or Buckley? The shoulder is one of the most frequently used joints in the body. It is also the most mobile joint with a wide range of motion.

  • Shoulder Instability & dislocation: The shoulder is a very moveable joint and once it had dislocated, the risk of future dislocations is greater. When the shoulder slips out of the socket repeatedly, this is known as chronic dislocation.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A torn rotator cuff is one of the most common shoulder injuries for adults. This can cause pain and weakness in the shoulder that can make performing everyday activities hard.
  • Frozen Shoulder: If you are experiencing pain and stiffness in the shoulder that worsens over time, this could be frozen shoulder.
  • Shoulder Impingement: This occurs when the shoulder blade puts pressure on the soft tissue in the shoulder and can cause pain, particularly when raising the arm. This can lead to shoulder bursitis or tendonitis.

  • Elbow Arthritis: Elbows affected by arthritis can become difficult to move and painful due to the surfaces not moving smoothly together and tightening around the joint.
