More about shoulder pain
The ‘shoulder complex’ is actually made up of 4 joints, the most well know of which, the shoulder is known as the ‘gleno-humeral’ joint. This joint is the most mobile, yet unstable joint in the body. The shoulder joints rely on a complex, synchronised pattern of muscle and joint interaction to maintain stability and function of the whole arm. This excessive mobility is its main weakness, causing it to become easily injured through trauma or overuse.
Injuries are often associated with certain ‘overhead’ sports such as swimming or tennis, where a large degree of shoulder flexibility is required, along with repetitive and large movements. Here are some of the most common shoulder injuries we treat successfully at goPhysio:

Used goPhysio for the first time for a long standing shoulder injury. Quick and efficient in getting an appointment and then have had friendly and skilled advice and physio. Supported by an online report incorporating exercises to do at home, my perception after only one session is totally positive and I’d recommend goPhysio without question.

I had a physio appointment with Hugo following an operation for a fractured shoulder. I found Hugo to be very knowledgeable and experienced. He also was very helpful because he not only sent me physio exercises but also Pilates routines that I could do without harming my shoulder. The handouts that were sent were very professional and in a variety of formats. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend goPhysio.
