Common shoulder treatments and symptoms

As well as attaching your shoulder blade to your upper arm, the muscles, tendons and ligaments in your shoulder do a lot of work and provide a lot of movement.

Sports and work-related shoulder injuries are common, but we assess and treat a wide range of concerns and conditions. The more common ones include:

Shoulder Dislocation -
