    Shoulder injury treatment

A shoulder injury can have a significant effect on your everyday life, not to mention how it can hinder anyone involved in physical work or participating in sports.

We provide you with a full range of services to diagnose and treat upper limb conditions and injuries to help restore activity and confidence. 

You may have suffered a shoulder injury and are now experiencing pain or discomfort. If so, you should have an initial consultation, where one of our team will make an assessment and determine what treatment – if any – you require. 

In many cases, you may only need rest or light exercise. If your condition is more complex, then physiotherapy or surgery may be required. Whichever route is best for you, we will support you along each step to recovery.

Signs to look out for include:

  • Pain in one of your shoulders.
  • A weakness when carrying our normal tasks.
  • There may be swelling and bruising.
  • You might think you have a “dead arm”.

These are just some of the indications of a shoulder injury. You can rest assured that:

  • We have access to MRI and ultrasound scanning facilities.
  • Our expert team will work closely with you to tailor and monitor treatment.
  • Our upper limb surgeon is a specialist in reconstructive surgery, sports-related injuries, and complicated traumas. 

Players of golf and tennis are particularly prone to suffering shoulder pain. Other sports where shoulder problems can occur are football, rugby, rowing, skiing and snowboarding.

Injuries can include:

  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Rotator Cuff Tear
  • Superior Labral Anterior Posterior lesions
  • AC Joint disorders
  • Long Head of Biceps Rupture
  • Shoulder Fractures
  • Shoulder Dislocations

If your injury is sports-related, our team of sports physicians and physiotherapists have the experience and expertise to help get you back out playing again as soon as possible.

If surgery is required, our surgeon:

  • Uses minimally invasive arthroscopic keyhole surgery.
  • Works alongside our expert physiotherapists and sports physicians.
  • Ensures you gain comprehensive care and treatment.

Our team is available to provide you with the highest standards in orthopaedic care and help you enjoy the best quality of life. To speak to us about your shoulder injury, please contact us via phone on 020 8629 1889email info@wimbledonclinics.co.uk or use the form on this page.
