Shoulders

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain may have many different causes. Osteoarthritis, chronically dislocating shoulder (unstable shoulder), tendonitis or tendinosis are all examples of shoulder issues.

 It’s the most complex joint of the body and the most mobile. It has only one attachment to the rest of the skeleton and that is via the clavicle.

Most injuries to the shoulder is to the muscles of the rotor cuff. This is a group of muscles that come off the scapula (shoulder blade) and attach onto the upper part of the arm. Their job is to guide the shoulder through different angles of movement.

The most commonly hurt muscle is the supraspinatus muscle. Its also the muscle involved in impingement syndromes where the muscle gets impinged under the acromion bone of the shoulder where it runs through like a bony tunnel. 

Frozen shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis) is another condition that affects many people . Its often misdiagnosed. There are two types of frozen shoulder. One is where the cause is unknown, and the other is from injury. Both versions take up to 18 months to resolve without proper care.  

Osteoarthritis, chronically dislocating shoulder (unstable shoulder), tendonitis or tendinosis are all examples of shoulder issues.

Dr Nothling has specialised training in shoulders beyond the normal curriculum offered at university and claims a special interest. He has great success with these conditions even when they have been plaguing a person for months. He also deals with frozen shoulders and decreases the recovery time by many months using a specialized technique.
