Shoulders can be prone to several injuries either through acute trauma or wear and tear over time due to their extensive movement range. If you are struggling with a shoulder problem, Mr Yanni near Shoreham will be able to see you and help diagnose and treat the condition.

  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: A dislocated or partially dislocated shoulder can occur much more frequently than a hip dislocation and can be extremely painful. The shoulder joint can become unstable the more frequently it occurs.
  • Frozen Shoulder: Caused by inflammation of the ligaments holding shoulder bones in place, this condition can interfere with everyday movements of the shoulder, such as getting dressed.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: Stiffness and increased pain are symptoms of a tear to the rotator cuff. It can also cause weakness in the arm and might cause patients to wake-up in pain when sleeping.
  • Shoulder Impingement: Sometimes referred to as Rotator Cuff Tendonitis, this condition occurs when the tendons in the shoulder become inflamed. This can cause pain when patients carry out certain movements such as raising the arm above the head.
