Are you searching for a private orthopaedic shoulder specialist near Hawley?

The shoulder is our most mobile joint but due to this, it can be prone to injury and wear and tear. If you are suffering from shoulder pain or issues with your mobility near Hawley or Swanley Village, then Mr Yanni is here to provide the correct treatment.

  • Frozen Shoulder: This common condition can limit movement making performing common everyday tasks hard and causing pain, particularly at night.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A tear in the rotator cuff can cause pain and weakness in the shoulder, particularly when raising or lowering the arm. It can also cause night waking, due to pain at night.
  • Shoulder Instability: The shoulder joint is held in place via a number of muscles and tendons. It is extremely mobile and can become dislocated due to impact, such as a fall. Once your shoulder has dislocated, it can become unstable and prone to frequent dislocations.

Are you experiencing elbow pain in Swanley Village? At Mr Yanni’s private clinics he can provide a thorough assessment and diagnosis, along with a comprehensive treatment plan, so you get regain mobility.

  • Elbow Arthritis: Very common with age, osteoarthritis causes the cartilage to wear down so it no longer provides a smooth cushion between joints. As the bones in the elbow start to rub against each other, this can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling.
  • Tennis Elbow: This is caused by an inflammation of the tendons in the elbow and is felt on the bony prominence on the outer elbow. It is caused by repetitive movements but not just in tennis players.
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: When the main nerve that runs along the arm – the ulnar nerve – becomes compressed, this can cause numbness and tingling in the elbow and forearm.
  • Golfer’s Elbow: Similar to Tennis Elbow, this condition causes inflammation of the tendons on the inside of the elbow. This gives rise to pain and tenderness in the area.
