Private Orthopaedic surgeon available to treat shoulder problems near Plaxtol

The shoulder can be prone to lots of injuries, specific trauma, or general wear and tear over time and can cause pain and discomfort. If you live in Plaxtol, Mr Yanni will help diagnose your condition to relieve pain and improve mobility.

  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A tear in the tendons and muscles surrounding the shoulder joint can cause acute pain or weakness in the arm and inhibit you from carrying out day-to-day activities.
  • Frozen Shoulder: Often first diagnosed due to the pain experienced by the sufferer, this condition can affect the movement of the shoulder joint, particularly reaching above your head. Stiffness and difficulty sleeping are also symptoms of this condition.
  • Shoulder Impingement: Sometimes referred to as Swimmer’s Shoulder, Tennis Shoulder, or Rotator Cuff Tendonitis, it is caused by inflammation in the tendons in the shoulder.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: Depending on the severity of the dislocation of the shoulder joint, treatment for this painful condition will vary.

Book a consultant appointment with a Plaxtol elbow consultant

Elbow pain is caused by sports injuries, repetitive movements, trauma, or arthritis and can be very upsetting. Mr Yanni is available by appointment near Plaxtol to help ease your concerns and plan the best course of treatment.

  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: This condition can sometimes cause numbness in the ring finger and little finger and is caused by a compression of the ulnar nerve at the back of the elbow. Pain and tingling are also common symptoms.
  • Elbow Arthritis: As the cartilage of the elbow becomes worn away over time or damaged, sufferers can experience high levels of pain, swelling, or stiffness in their joints.
  • Tennis Elbow: When the muscles on the outside of the elbow become inflamed due to overuse, the tendon fibres become irritated. This can cause pain in certain movements like gripping or lifting.
  • Golfer’s Elbow: Not dissimilar to Tennis Elbow, this condition is caused by tendonitis on the inner side of the elbow and can cause pain in that area.
