Trapeziometacarpal arthritis is a relatively common condition. It gives pain on key pinch and pin pinch.  Patients lose the first web space span (i.e cannot pull a large book from a shelf).  Early treatment consists of anti-inflammatories, injection and splintage.  The results of surgery are extremely good.

Live life free from shoulder pain in Chislehurst – specialist orthopaedic shoulder consultant

Shoulder injuries can make everyday movements such as dressing, brushing your hair, or raising your arms painful. If you are suffering from shoulder pain and are based in Chislehurst or Elmstead, Mr Yanni can diagnose and treat a range of conditions.

  • Frozen Shoulder: Frozen shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis can develop after a one-off event or over time. It leads to reduced shoulder movement and is associated with joint pain.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A rotator cuff tear causes weakness in the arm, severe pain, and tenderness. It is one of the most common causes of pain in middle-aged adults and older people.
  • Shoulder Impingement: This term is commonly used to describe a number of shoulder conditions including shoulder bursitis and tendonitis. Patients say it is painful to lift their arms and this can be particularly significant at night.
  • Shoulder Instability & dislocation: The shoulder is very mobile and can become dislocated. Sometimes when the shoulder does not work as it should, the shoulder can become unstable and this can lead to frequent dislocations.
