Common Shoulder Conditions Treated In Slade Green

  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. An injury to this area is called a rotator cuff tear, but these are not all the same, and treatment will vary.
  • Frozen Shoulder: A frozen shoulder – also called Adhesive Capsulitis, causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint. This condition can last for 18 months or longer.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: The shoulder has the widest range of movement in the body, and shoulder dislocation can occur. Once the upper arm has been forced out of the shoulder socket, the joint can become unstable.
  • Shoulder Impingement: This is the most common cause of shoulder pain and is a result of the tendon to the rotator cuff muscle or the shoulder’s fluid-filled bursa becoming irritated or inflamed.

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 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.”
