  • Frozen Shoulder: Characterised by pain and a loss of motion in the shoulder joint, frozen shoulder is most common in older adults aged between 40 and 60.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: When the shoulder joint slides out of the glenoid – the socket part of the shoulder joint, this is known as dislocation. This may be a partial dislocation, known as subluxation, or complete dislocation. Once this has happened, it could give rise to shoulder instability.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: Major injury to the tendons in the shoulder joint that provide support and a wide range of motion can lead to pain, weakness in the arm, and a crackling sensation when moving the shoulder in certain positions.
  • Shoulder Impingement: When the tendons in the shoulder joint become inflamed, this may give rise to severe pain at rest and during activities.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Many tendons run around the hand both on the palm side and also on the back of the hand.  These can be involved in inflammation and any inflammation of a tendon is described as a tendonitis.  These are often related to overuse syndromes through manual work, repetitive activity, sporting endeavours and also in the workplace due to repetitive keyboard use.  They can also occur against the backdrop of inflammation in the joints and systemic arthritis.

Mr Yanni - Horton Kirby elbow consultant

“Mr Dimitri Yanni, was an angel sent to me in my time of pain, my first meeting with Mr Yanni left me feeling totally confident that he would look after me. In fact after my surgery I was struggling with uncontrollable pain and emailed Mr. Yanni, although it was a bank holiday, his birthday and he was out of the country, he phoned me and made immediate arrangements for me to get to a hospital with full explanation of what he required them to do. Mr. Yanni has gone over and beyond, couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have taken care of me. Thank you so much for caring, professionalism.”
