Shoulder and arm pain
Our shoulders are extremely mobile joints. To enable this mobility the joint has a complex system of muscle and ligamentous support. When the joint is healthy these structures work in balance, but any injury can alter this, and often the balance is not regained, even after any injured structures have healed.
Elbow problems are common and often grumble on for some time before patients seek treatment. The elbow is very vulnerable to damage, particularly in individuals who use computers. Your osteopath will work to relieve your symptoms and improve the postural positioning of your joints.
Common problems we see in clinic include rotator cuff problems, frozen shoulder, impingements, tennis and golfers elbow, biceps tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and pain from arthritis.
Each treatment is tailor made for your unique problem!
Osteopaths are trained primary care providers and are skilled in diagnosing problems, including those which may require further investigation if necessary.
Around 30,000 people currently consult osteopaths every working day with more than seven million consultations carried out every year (General Osteopathic Council).
I contacted Mike after being in some considerable pain and prescribed diazepam by my GP. I can honestly say that after my second visit, which was today, the difference is incredible. Highly recommended for the ‘practical’ benefit of how much better I feel but also for the friendly, honest and warm nature that I have experienced.

“I was referred by my GP due to worsening arthralgia and back pain. My GP was also a patient and told me what to expect.
I was delighted that most of the treatment was gentle and effective. It keeps my muscles and joints mobile and reduces my pain and stiffness enabling me to enjoy life more.
I would highly recommend P.O.C. and have done on many occasions.”
