Nuggets of Wisdom


Trapeziometacarpal arthritis is a relatively common condition. It gives pain on key pinch and pin pinch.  Patients lose the first web space span (i.e cannot pull a large book from a shelf).  Early treatment consists of anti-inflammatories, injection and splintage.  The results of surgery are extremely good.

Orthopaedic consultant for shoulder conditions near Hayes

Are you looking for a shoulder specialist near Hayes, West Wickham, or Plaistow? The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body and allows a tremendous range of movements. It is also a complex structure and when there is a problem, this can impact everyday life.

  • Frozen Shoulder: Known as Adhesive Capsulitis, this common condition can be extremely painful and cause the shoulder to become stiff and partially or completely immobile.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles that connect the upper arm to the shoulder blade. A tear to this area can result in pain, particularly at night. A rotator cuff tear can develop due to trauma or an injury or due to wear and tear over time.
  • Shoulder Impingement: This causes pain in the shoulder and upper arm and is extremely common. It causes pain when the arm is lifted out to the side or up to the ear, so can cause issues when dressing or brushing your hair.
  • Shoulder Instability & dislocation: Shoulder instability means the joint can move so it dislocates. Dislocations can be traumatic, due to an injury, or instability where the shoulder dislocates repeatedly with very little force.
